Welcome! ¡Bienvenido!

LETI is dedicated to strengthening relationships between Latinos and the wider community. We provide an array of services to that purpose. We also sponsor community events in and around our Lynnwood headquarters, including our annual Latino Expo; health fairs, workshops and other personal and family development activities. For more information on current and recent teaching activities click here.

We, the board of directors and the executive staff of LETI, reaffirm our values of inclusion, non-discrimination, and service to our clients and community members. We also reaffirm our commitment to work with, support and assist the Latino community regardless of immigration experience and status, nationality, socio-economic, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and ability. Our offices and training center are safe spaces for anyone, free from the dangers of discrimination, bigotry, hate, and other forms of abuse.
