" I am passionate about helping others learn, especially others in my community. Continuing education affords new opportunities to numerous people, and learning English specifically improves the employability and capabilities which in turn can greatly improve the quality of life of many Hispanic and Latino families in the United States. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: English for Social Benefit
The US has a large and growing Latino population which is often criticized in media and struggles to access the social benefits afforded to citizens. Nicolas want to expand access to English education services to improve employability and encourage higher education among children and young adults in the metro-Atlanta area. This project provides resources for individuals to learn English for free through an online application with volunteer tutors and connects them to existing local resources to augment their learning.
The ultimate measure of impact is improving the English language skills of participants involved. Nicolas hopes to begin with a small group of 10 individuals to provide with English study resources, the ability to connect students with volunteer tutors, and the database of other local organizations with similar goals; and to measure their progress over the course of the project.
