Education is the gateway to new opportunities and positive life changes. When people increase their knowledge through education programs, they have a greater understanding of their own community and the world. As a community learns more about other languages like English and Spanish it allows them to communicate beyond their borders. Information takes on new meanings and there are more life choices available. One aspect of education is developing individual talents and skills which helps to create confidence and personal satisfaction. Through individual effort the Sustainable Lives program can give people courage and improve their self worth. Lives are changed as families encourage and support personal development. The Sustainable Lives program supports families learning together and strengthening relationships. Education is important for all members of a community including adults and children.
