The Guatemalan-Maya Center accompanies the uprooted through their years of transition and advocates to bring services to the community where they are most needed. We focus our efforts on early-childhood education, parent education/assistance, and advocacy.
OUTREACH: FAMILY EDUCATION & ASSITANCE
Did you know that children who fall behind grade level are 25% more likely to drop out of high school and 70% more likely to be arrested for a violent crime? That's why at The Guatemalan-Maya Center we are working to solve these problems at the source. Our VPK, Preschool, After School, and In-Home programs promotes academic success while empowering parents to be the first teacher of their child.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to use a family-centered approach to provide services to all low-income and immigrant families. We promote independence for the parents we serve through classes, workshops, and volunteer opportunities. Our programs include DCF ACCESS assistance, Parenting Classes, and Citizenship Classes.
We empower our community to speak out against injustice and challenge inequality for all immigrants and LEP communities. Advocacy is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
