About Us

The mission of El Centrito Family Learning Centers is to prepare youth and families of Ventura County to meet the future and become productive members of the community by providing bilingual, bicultural family and youth educational programs in partnership with parents, schools, and neighborhoods.

El Centrito Family Learning Centers is a community center located in Oxnard, California, and has been providing families with preventive, supportive and educationally enhancing services since its inception. El Centrito was founded in 1992, under the sponsorship of Sisters of St. Joseph Ministerial Services, and in 1999, El Centrito began operating as its own non-profit entity. Last year, the agency served 3,170 participants, 1,931 children, and 1,239 adults. El Centrito addresses participants’ educational needs in a bilingual community setting, and provides an environment that nurtures relationships and trust. For families with young children, the agency serves as an educational entrance point. El Centrito also serves as a “cool” place to learn, and provides participants with an opportunity to establish relationships with other youth and adults outside of school and home. El Centrito’s three interlinked programs are designed to serve the entire family, and provide children and parents with tools to build their educational skills.
