The Diversity and Resiliency Institute of El Paso offers education and training for community members who need help accessing resources, who want to become more involved in their community, and who want to become more socially conscious. We believe that access is key to resilient communities.
Education Brings Growth and Empowerment.
Education Brings Change.
