“We envision creating a space wherein community members congregate to negotiate meaning in physical, cultural, emotional, social, linguistic, artistic, and individual contexts. ”
“At the SEED Adult and Family Learning Community, we define and redefine our communities, our realities, and ourselves by creating and sharing knowledge in language and literacy classes and through community engagement.”
English as a Second or Other Language
We are currently involved in two distinct English language learning opportunities:
Through a partnership with the Multilingual Education Team at the Austin Independent School District, we offer our flagship program - the Adult English Literacy and Leadership Program, housed at J. Houston Elementary in Southeast Austin.
Through a partnership with Nuestro Grupo's Academia Cuauhtli, the Multilingual Team at the Austin Independent School District, and the Mexican American Cultural Center, we are offering English language classes to parents.
Early Childhood Classes
We have always welcomed the children of our participants in our classes at J. Houston Elementary. Since January 2016, The SEED has offered those children engaging learning experiences through two of our leaders, Lupita and Rocio.
We are a community of adult learners, exploring language, literacy, culture, history, and our communities to become leaders in issues that affect our lives. This website provides information about the community.
