Maria Palma ARRIVED AT THE ESCUELITA OF DCET 2 years ago and shared with us that she did not know how to read and write and that he had the illusion of becoming a citizen of the United States. With tears she shared that she had already visited several community Learning center, but none of them had helped her. We convinced her that : YES YOU CAN!
Our mission here at DCET(La Escuelita) is to assist immigrants in their process of assimilation and acculturation offering English classes, GED, citizenship, and elementary and Jr. High School classes in Spanish.
With your help Maria Palma and other students over the age of 50 years will be able to achieve the American Dream.
We are trying to raise $13.500 to cover the following expenses of an entire year: The course includes;
- Elementary classes in Spanish
- ESL (English as a Second Language
- Classes of Civics includes: History and Government
We serve the immigrant community in its majority Hispanic/Latino families with ESL, GED, Citizenship and Computer classes as well as Spanish Literacy Classes for FREE.
This Immersion Spanish Literacy program will benefit Hispanic seniors over 50 who cannot read/write Spanish and therefore they cannot
communicate in English in order to pass the Citizenship test.
We need your donation because, Our Hispanic community in Irving, Texas requires this additional support as its growth of illiterate population keeps on growing disproportionally, representing a challenge to the progress of this city.
We want to encourage you to help us receive any dollar that can make a difference in the progress of our city. Assisting the funding for this program will allow seniors to learn how to read/write in Spanish so they can learn English as a second language and then pass the citizenship test.
Your donation will make the difference.
We at DCET acknowledge that education is the major component to progress in any socio-economic level in the world.
