The mission of the National Latino Education Institute (NLEI) is to advance our community’s economic independence through market and results-driven education, training, employment and advocacy.

NLEI is a not-for-profit community service agency founded in 1972. The organization evolved from an advocacy group formed in the late 60s by several community leaders who decided to challenge major employers in the city who consistently failed to hire qualified Hispanic applicants. Today, we are a provider of quality employment training and placement services. 

Each year NLEI places hundreds of job seekers in industrial, clerical and professional positions with over 300 companies. We directly train and place over 200 students annually. Also, NLEI provides basic adult education and English as a Second Language classes to hundreds of adults. 

Over the years, NLEI has formed strong partnerships with many of Chicago's leading businesses. As employers, such businesses have found that NLEI has provided them with applicants who have the training and positive attitude required to compete successfully in today's market.
