Through professional development workshops, the William & Lanaea C. Featherstone Foundation’s programs equip Latinos with skills that improve their employment opportunities and promote economic empowerment.
- Computer literacy: Our signature, computer literacy program, Empowering Latinos One “Click” at a Time teaches Latino parents, basic computer literacy skills and provides them with laptops for their homes. Our program helps participants increase their employment opportunities and enhance their ability to support their children academically.
- Training a Bilingual Workforce: Our program “Reaching New Heights,” prepares bilingual, Latino candidates for key positions in the financial services industry. As a result of our program, Mexican native Delia Robles landed a job at New York Life Insurance Company after 14 years working in restaurants as a server.
- Financial Literacy: Our leading financial education workshop series called Mi Dinero, Mi Destino, provides participants with practical skills that help shape critical personal finance decisions.
