The Vision: "2013 marks the 33rd anniversary of Education Based Latino Outreach (EBLO). In 1980 a small inspired group of community activists came together under the leadership of the late Jose Ruiz with the goal of finding a way to help the children of first generation Hispanics in Baltimore reach their full educational potential. All of us who came together had experienced the reality of what it meant to receive a quality education. Some of the initial committee members had experienced discrimination as they struggled in schools that were completely unprepared to reach out to children with limited English proficiency (LEP). The stories of that initial founding group is only slightly different from the experience of the children that EBLO serves today. For more click here...
