In 2009, the MATT Foundation created the MATT Maestro en Casa program to help Latino immigrants in the US become better integrated in their work and better support their children in their education.
Upon completion of the program, participants reported feeling more comfortable speaking English, participating in school activities with their children, and helping their children with their homework. Participants also mentioned having a better understanding of the importance of setting goals and academic expectations for their children.
