Our mission is to empower Latino students and their families from early childhood to college through holistic academic, leadership, and community programs.

Our Vision

At Los Niños Primero, our vision is to inspire Latino children to become lifelong learners and exemplary members of the community.




At Los Niños Primero, we deeply value and respect the dignity and culture of our students, families, teachers, and volunteers. We create an inclusive and welcoming environment where everyone feels heard, appreciated, and celebrated.


Transparency and integrity are at the heart of our organization. We uphold the highest ethical standards, fostering an environment of trust, honesty, and accountability that inspires confidence and cultivates a sense of self-worth in all those we serve.


We believe in shared responsibility for the success of our students. Teachers, youth volunteers, and staff are dedicated and committed to delivering a high-quality program, while parents play a crucial role in supporting their children’s academic progress. Together, we work hand-in-hand to create an environment that encourages growth and inspires a love of learning.


At Los Niños Primero, we are driven by a passion for learning. We motivate and challenge our students with the goal of promoting higher education among the Latino community, allowing families to see continued post-secondary education as an achievable possibility. We create a warm, accommodating, and fun-filled environment where students and families feel inspired to embrace education and reach their full potential.


We actively foster a sense of community engagement within Los Niños Primero. We value teamwork, cultural diversity, and, by empowering our families, we encourage them to contribute to their communities and become agents of positive change.
