1. What we believe

At Edu-Futuro, we believe that every young person deserves to thrive. Without the financial means for early childhood education, after-school enrichment, private tutors, and college prep services, our region’s first-generation students struggle to compete with their more affluent peers.

2. What we aim to solve

Throughout Northern Virginia, the struggle to improve educational attainment is one of the most serious challenges facing immigrant youth and their families. In 2019, the dropout rate for ELL students was 18% at APS, 30.5% at FCPS, and 19.8% at ACPS —significantly higher, in all cases, than the school districts’ overall dropout rates of 5.6%, 7.4%, and 7.7%, respectively. This is where Edu-Futuro steps in.
