We are Todos Juntos Learning Center because "Everybody Together" is the foundation for our future. Through our 2-Gen model, we work with children and parents simultaneously, building them up together, to create meaningful opportunities for the whole family. Family and community are at the core of who we are and why we exist. And because together more is possible, we collaborate with several different organizations to be a one-stop-shop for our students and their families.
Many low-income children, especially those in families whose primary language is not English, are academically disadvantaged before they even start school. At Todos Juntos Learning Center, we recognize that combatting achievement gaps requires targeting the variety of barriers low-income non-English speaking families face. Since 2009, we have used a three-pronged approach to support family education for low-income, predominantly Latino, Central Texas residents. We combine high quality early childhood education (ECE), adult English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, and culturally appropriate parenting and life skills education. By providing simultaneous programming to adults and children four days a week for nine months out of the year, Todos Juntos provides families the opportunity to learn together, prioritize the whole family’s education, and gain control over their future.
Todos Juntos understands that parents who feel confident and capable are the best equipped to support their children, which is why our family learning center provides a variety of resources that are tailored to our population. At Todos Juntos we support our students to live, learn, work, and engage with the central Texas community. By promoting a population of children who are school-ready and adults who are able to work, shop, and socialize, we help build a central Texas of self-sufficient families.
