Achieving higher education has become a barrier for students of low-income in underserved communities. In Aprende Inglés, our mission is to not negate this social issue but focus on the individuals who have been neglected for many years and are now supporting families and raising children within these unfair communities. We believe education equity is beyond immediate students and as a micro-organization we hope to bring lights and colors into this issue and support adults not given the opportunity to learn English.
Alcanzar la educación superior se ha convertido en una barrera para los estudiantes de bajos ingresos en comunidades marginadas. En Aprende Inglés, nuestra misión no es negar este problema social, sino centrarnos en las personas que han sido abandonadas durante muchos años y ahora están apoyando a las familias y criando niños dentro de estas comunidades injustas. Creemos que la equidad en la educación va más allá de los estudiantes inmediatos y, como una microorganización, esperamos aportar luces y colores a este tema y apoyar a los adultos que no tienen la oportunidad de aprender inglés.

Plus, I wanted to do a new kind of service that I’ve never done before, so I’m really excited to be part of this project!"
"Being half Mexican I know how hard it can be for people to learn English. I know I am lucky to have learned English at such a young age and I think it's important that others who weren't able to have the opportunity or didn't learn at a young age, to learn properly and effectively if they want. I wanted to make a difference in people's lives and I felt this was one way I could."
