Congreso continues to improve communities

The Citizens Bank Foundation will present a $10,000 grant to Congreso de Latinos Unidos, Inc. tomorrow Wednesday, May 9 at 11:30 a.m. The donation will support the organization’s Learn and Work Program, which focuses on financial literacy, leadership development and technology skills to connect students with career opportunities. Approximately 25 students will be in attendance to learn about the importance of staying in school and developing the skills needed to connect to jobs.

Congreso takes a real interesting approach working with the community. Not only do they have several charter schools and after-school programs, but they also include Harcum College, a community-based associate’s degree program. The new grant will help support all of these programs and bring our community closer to our career goals. Today I heard someone say Latinos are growing in numbers in prisons and we have to change this.
