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.
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 educate Latinos on how to navigate the western system in order to achieve better jobs and health care, helping them to eventually become leaders in the American Society.
We also offer the following fun and interactive Language Instruction programs in a small group setting:
-Fun and interactive Spanish classes for ALL levels
-Occupational Spanish classes tailored to your business
-English classes for any non-English speaker
-Translation & interpreting services
We celebrate diversity and have a strong community feel at Edúcate Ya by welcoming people of ALL backgrounds. We are a Latinx led organization. Come, be a part of our community and let us find the exact Language class that fits your needs!
