Productive Parents Program

Focused on adult learning, workforce development, and improving community members’ economic prosperity and opportunities, Mano a Mano is committed to providing a trusted and safe environment where adults of all ages can come to learn, gain new skills, and find a better job.  We meet our client where they are at educationally and work with them to establish and achieve their goals.  Productive Parents Program Initiatives include:

  • English Language Acquisition: working in partnership with the College of Lake County, we offer multi-level English language courses, ranging from basic to advanced classes;
  • GED in Spanish: offering individual GED subject area classes in order to prepare students to take this high school equivalency test so that they can either continue their education or obtain employment;
  • Spanish Literacy: recognizing that many community members have limited Spanish literacy, we offer Spanish language classes in order to support full literacy (reading and writing) in Spanish, so that community members are then better able to acquire English as a second language; and
  • Education and Employment Coaching: providing one-on-one case management with community members to support the continuing of their education (past GED for example) and/or in obtaining a better job based on their skills and interest.
