In April 2017, Instituto del Progreso Latino celebrated four decades of its innovation-providing education and career opportunities to people often underserved by traditional education systems. Working primarily in Chicago’s Latino community, this milestone represents the collective impact of Chicago’s families, business and education leaders, and civic and philanthropic partners supporting tens of thousands of families who have built greater stability with Instituto. Established in 1977, it has grown to a powerful nonprofit organization that offers a suite of services including workforce development programs, financial counseling, job placement services, two public charter high schools, basic adult education, citizenship services, and after-school and summer care for young students.
