Founded 40 years ago to provide practical education to Latin American immigrants, El Centro today is an all-volunteer non-profit organization serving today’s immigrants through affordable English, citizenship, and computer classes and a free legal clinic while promoting inter-cultural understanding though a multi-lingual language exchange and Spanish and Mandarin classes. We create a community of understanding through language.
