Education classes teach life skills so people can reach their full potential.
For people to reach their full potential, they need more than just physical resources. They need the knowledge, skills and opportunities to reach their goals. Caritas of Austin’s Education program is aimed at giving people the tools they need to succeed. Whether it’s learning to manage personal finances, developing vocational skills, adapting to life in a new country, or setting life goals, our Education program adds an additional layer of support to our comprehensive services.
