La Hermandad’s mission is to address the legal, social, educational, and economical inequities facing immigrants, their families, our youth, and the senior population. La Hermandad emphasizes citizenship organizing, civic engagement and community development activities aimed at building grassroots power in order to strengthen this community’s voice.
Citizenship Classes– La Hermandad Hank Lacayo Youth & Family Center has proudly served thousands of legal permanent residents (LPR) to become naturalized U.S Citizens. Our class program consists of basic and advanced levels at the bilingual atmosphere (English and Spanish). The student is placed on the necessary level by the instructor’s discretion. The classes cover topics such as U.S History, Government, Civics, and a mock interview. We offer flexible schedules and additional resources.
English as a Second Language
English as a Second Language – not only educationally advantageous but also economically beneficial to our community’s’ futures. By building capacity, adult students are able to help their children with their schoolwork and seek better-paying jobs. Located in Oxnard, this region is heavily impacted by migrant farm workers. Education promotes additive bilingualism and biculturalism (Lambert, 1980) since students are adding to their linguistic repertoire and sense of identity through the experience of being educated in a foreign language and computers.
