About Us
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 services to achieve a higher level of learning.

Our Philosophy
The underlying philosophy of our program is supported by a substantial body of research that indicates that students must have three sets of skills to succeed in school: (1) a high level of academic English, (2) ability to read and comprehend in English on grade level by third grade, and (3) understand and perform basic algebraic functions by 8th grade. These skill sets are the foundation for success in school. Our lessons are focused on these 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
