Hispanic/Latino families in its majority, find DCET as a  one-stop-shop. At our Community Learning Centers LA ESCUELITA (The Little School), we offer multigenerational educational, cultural and community initiatives in partnership with the City of Irving, the Dallas and Irving school districts, corporations, mentors and volunteers. 
At DCET, parents learn ESL, GED, Citizenship classes, Spanish Literacy, or Computer classes while their children in another activity room, under the same roof practice dancing Mexican Folklorico, singing and playing some musical instrument. We strive for youth/children and their parents to become productive members of society while developing a sense of joy and pride working together to reach these goals.  Students at DCET are developed as leaders of this country. After graduation some students become facilitators of our programs and education is passed on to first, second and third generations. Second generation high school students become tutors of parents learning other language and in return, DCET mentors them with prep-college workshops assisting them to enter college.  A win/win situation!
