United through Education (Familias Unidas) was developed by Secundino and Ninfa Zuno. With over 20 years of experience of teaching in a low-income community, Secundino and Ninfa created this program to engage parents and teach parents how to become active participants in their children’s education to promote progress of the community. Being immigrants themselves, Secundino and Ninfa want to show parents in their community that college is a realistic goal for their children. Their son, Esteban, graduated from Loyola Marymount University and is currently a Region Manager at a large bank broker/dealer. Their daughter, Adriana, graduated from Santa Clara University with a degree in Psychology.

Secundino and Ninfa have a true passion for United through Education (Familias Unidas), which shows through their success. Since the founding of this program, they have taught and helped over 920 families within the Bay Area. They have inspired those families to be life-long learners and as a result of this program they have created a learning community. They truly believe that with hard work and dedication, families can achieve their dreams.
