The Cesar Chavez Education Institute is a project of the National Farm Workers Service Center that was founded by Cesar Chavez in 1966. The institute was established as a non-profit organization for the purpose of increasing the education opportunities available to students in schools who can benefit from additional instructional and college editing services to achieve a higher level of learning.

The Institute's instructional program consists of a forty (40) hour sequence of lessons, primarily for English Language Learners who need language development in English Language Arts and/or Pre-Algebra/Algebra.

Classes consist of small groups with a highly qualified teacher for one hour twice a week with classes continuing until the end of the school year. During the hour of instruction, students meet with the teacher, work on a homework assignment, and work on a computer activity.

We believe all students can learn. But they need a strong foundation before high school for success. Our lessons are focused on basic skills and are aligned with the content standards as adopted by the California State Board of Education.


“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read.”

~Cesar E. Chavez

"It is the goal of the institute to work with families to ensure their children graduate from high school and enter a university fully prepared to succeed in their studies. It is the dream of all parents for their children."

~Sonia C. Rodriguez
Education Director
