Instituto's 40th Anniversary

Honoring our Past, Building our Future
At Instituto, we believe that education is power. That the right education investments are transformative and have rippling effects that last generations. We knew this at our founding in 1977 when community members organized to provide the necessary English and skill building classes to help immigrant families find employment. It continues with Instituto’s learners today, whether it is the adult learner who joins us for basic elementary education, a father taking English courses, a young mother launching her career in nursing, or a high school student who is looking for a promising learning environment to call home, they are each tapping into their true potential that strengthens our communities.

For the last 40 years, we have taken bold approaches to find lasting solutions in adult education, youth education, and workforce development. We have demonstrated what is truly possible in our communities and built nationally recognized models for economic mobility that translate to better lives for our families.

For Instituto’s 40th Anniversary, we invite you to celebrate with us as we honor our rich history together and build the foundation for our next 40 years of impact and innovation. Throughout its history, Instituto’s families have demonstrated the true power of education in their lives. We thank you for believing in each one of them and for joining us to build another 40 years of transformative education opportunities.
Thank you to our 40th Anniversary Sponsors!
