We are excited to announce Educa2, an organization dedicated to strengthening our community by helping Latino students reach their full potential. Over half of the Latino students currently enrolled in Elementary schools are performing below proficiency level statewide, including close to 5,000 of the 10,000 Latino students the San Mateo and the Redwood City Elementary School Districts alone. This problem has reached crisis proportions as Latinos are now the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority in California and in the US.

The foundation of Educa2 is a partnership of mentors, teachers, parents and community members creating a nurturing environment for Latino elementary school students to instill motivation and mindset for long-term learning and acquire skills that will help them through school and life experiences. Under the leadership of members of the Stanford University Graduate School of Education with knowledge and experience in addressing the challenges of Latino English Language Learners, our goal is to develop a scalable model that can eventually be applied in other schools and geographies where Latino students face similar challenges.  We are launching our first after-school program at an Elementary School in the Peninsula in September 2014.

Thank you !
