Juntos Aprendemos/Together We Learn

Juntos Aprendemos Serves more than 100 children & 80 children each year at the following Portland Public Schools: Rigler, Harvey Scott, and Cesar Chavez Elementary. Glenfair (Reynolds School District) is also served.

The Juntos Aprendemos curriculum is designed to put children on track to meet key literacy milestones while parent education strategies promote sustained engagement in their children’s academic lives.

Juntos Aprendemos offers a sense of hope and power as Latino parents work to close the achievement gap by building skills to prepare their young children for school success. Since its beginning in 2000, Juntos Aprendemos has served over 550 families.
