LULAC's Education Programs

The key to the doors of opportunity

Over the years, the quality of education for Latinos in the United States has progressively improved. However, there is still a vast need for refinement. Currently, it has become increasingly apparent that there are still socioeconomic barriers, obstacles, and challenges that resonate deeply in Latino communities. This is the reality for Latinos who are faced with challenges each day related to barriers in language, racial identity, and various other factors that influence the appropriate access to areas that affect the quality of life, especially within education.

Through key education program initiatives and strategic policy advocacy, LULAC is helping advance the educational attainment of Hispanics in the United States and Puerto Rico. LULAC's cornerstone education programs are increasing academic achievement, graduation rates, digital literacy skills, and higher education pursuance for students across the country.

Ford Driving Dreams Grants Program

The Ford Driving Dreams Grants program, a collaboration of Ford Motor Company Fund and LULAC, aims to stimulate STEAM academic achievement, on-time high school completion, and college enrollment through localized solutions. The program provides LULAC Councils and their educational partners the tools to promote academic readiness, leadership, parent engagement, and community service to build stronger communities.
