Community Education

CentroNía partners with families and institutions to make our community stronger.  Working with a spectrum of learners from children to adults, our goal is to help students develop skills they will need for a lifetime: in school, at work, as parents, and as leaders in our community.  Our success comes from our innovative approach, which draws power from our multicultural, bilingual heritage and brings community members together.
