Estudio Comunitario In Mountain Home 

Idaho, United States


The objective of our Estudio Comunitario in Mountain Home is to provide a variety of educational opportunities for Spanish speaking individuals living in the United States but yearn to speak the English language and thereafter relate to this country and serve a better function in their communities. We're volunteers offering our time to the maintenance of this resource center, and constantly strive to provide an accessible place that facilitates learning in our community.


Within the school district of Mountain Home there are a lot of children from migrant Hispanic families as are in other parts of Idaho. These families are generally first generation, and have not yet learned English. Many parents strive in their work to support their children and have not been able to acquire the necessary skills to enable cultural and language know-how. Thus they tend to isolate themselves from the rest of the community without having possible opportunities conditioned to the continuation of an education. Our Estudio Comunitario is there precisely to support the education of adult immigrant families who have a desire to excel but do not possess the necessary knowledge of this country to carry it out alone; this is where our presence is essential in providing strong support to move forward.


Estudio Comunitario in Mountain Home 


Previously we were part of the Plaza Comunitaria of Mountain Home, the first established in Idaho. It was inaugurated on Friday, February 18, 2005 at the premises of Richard McKenna Charter High School and then moved to West Elementary School. The event took place through a video conference with the Head of the Consulate of Mexico in Salt Lake City, Utah and the Community Promotions Director of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad.

Beginning September 1, 2015 we continue our existence as Estudio Comunitario en Mountain Home still located in West Elementary School where its principal Mrs. Cruser has generously given us the use of the computer lab, room No. 22 for these classes. Our educational meetings are held on Thursdays from 5:00 to 7:00, this schedule accommodates our adult students who work and take care of their children. We have dedicated volunteers who help students to integrate their studies individually. Part of this time is used for group activities and the practice of ESL (English as a Second Language).







Our community study hall is an open educational community place where migrant adults, according to their interests, can go to learn to read and write Spanish, obtain the GED in Spanish, participate in English as a Second Language (ESL) classes or partake in online training for work and life. All this takes advantage of digital information technology in a computer room with access to the Internet.

Finally, all of this is done primarily through independent study. We help students personally and often with other volunteers willing to teach students to use the available resources like computers, where students can learn to navigate through the Internet and then access educational portals. All programs and services are free for the use.

We take this opportunity to thank the Mountain Home School District, West Elementary School, Public Library, ECHO, Parks and Recreation, Head Start and Migrant Head Start.
