About Us

The objective of the Zapata Olivella Center is to provide educational opportunity, life skills, work-related capacity building, and leadership development to the immigrant community in the Washington, DC metro area. Within a linguistic and culturally-friendly environment, our goal is to equip participants with basic employment and communication skills which will enable them to better provide for their families and ease their transition to full participation in society and in their local community. By opening paths to personal growth and educational opportunity, the Zapata Olivella Center will be not only a place of welcome and refuge for the immigrant community. It will be one in which hope is engendered by personal advancement and concrete mutual endeavor.
