Our Life-Changing Programs
Through our work, we are:
- Creating a Global Workforce: Our program “Reaching New Heights,” expands pathways into professional careers for immigrant communities who remain underrepresented in the financial services industry. Our results-driven training program leads to direct job placements. Our trainees secured positions at BB&T, MECU, PNC, Wells Fargo and other organizations. As a result, our graduates are earning between $9,000 and $30,000 more in wages, plus benefits for the first time.
- Improving Digital Literacy for Immigrant Communities: Our signature, computer literacy program, Empowering Latinos One “Click” at a Time, teaches Latino parents, basic computer skills taught in Spanish and provides them with laptops for their homes. As a result, our trainees increased their employment opportunities and can better support their children academically.
- Providing Financial Empowerment Resources to Underserved Groups: Our annual financial education conference, Mi Dinero, Mi Destino, equips participants with practical skills and vital information to help shape critical personal finance decisions.
- Awarding College Scholarships, making higher education attainable for underrepresented communities: In partnership with the Consular Section of the Mexican Embassy in Washington, DC and the University of Baltimore, we annually award top-performing, low-income students with merit-based college scholarship awards.
