Edúcate Ya

Non-Profit and Language School in Portland, OR


Mission: The mission of Edúcate Ya is to facilitate multi-cultural exchange and address the integration challenges faced by Latinos in Oregon through bilingual health, leadership, and education programs.


Vision: In 2000, Rafael Arellano-Barrera founded the organization in response to a lack of Latinos in leadership and managerial roles.  His vision was to create an organization that would eduate Latinos on how to navigate the western system in order to achieve better jobs and health care, helping them to eventually become leaders in American Society.


Education: Educating the Latino Community is a step in the right direction, but there is still much work to be done to break down larger barriers of language, racism, and prejudice in order for Latinos to succeed.
