Our Priorities


• Family Education | Educación Familiar
• Community Participation | Participación en Asuntos Civicos y Comuniatrios
• Promoting Leadership | Promoviendo el Liderazgo
Wenatchee United | Unidos Wenatchee

CAFÉ has partnered with various community organizations and individuals to promote community participation and leadership by taking active measures to create a ONE COMMUNITY movement. While we are centered in Wenatchee, we welcome those near and far.


Scholarships | Becas

Every year we award seven $500 scholarships to the NCW region to high school seniors entering vocational, college, or university studies. With doing so, we have an annual dinner fundraiser to help raise funds as we encourage students to continue in their journey to higher education.


Voting and Citizenship | Votación y Cuidadania

CAFÉ is highly involved in providing information about voter registration (see calendar for our voter registration dates), as well as information about immigration and becoming a citizen of the United States!
