Mano a Mano
Education Project Objectives

What? Provide comprehensive information about educational opportunities to Brownsville residents during Promotora home visits and community events.

Who? Promotoras, Education Representatives, and at least 200 Brownsville residents per year seeking information about educational resources

How? Create a comprehensive guide to educational resources in our area and provide this to residents during home visits, health fairs, school-district meetings and other community events.

Why? Low wages was identified as a prevailing issue during our discussions with Brownsville residents. To address this problem we must first empower residents to improve their educational attainment; this, we feel, will most directly impact their ability to obtain higher wages.
