History

Unlimited Potential  was founded in 1985 by a group of women who wanted to engage in their children’s education. The group lobbied the City of Phoenix for the first grant to start up educational programs for adults. Parents who were enrolled in the first educational groups, set the strong foundation that has allowed the organization to blossom. The programs have grown, evolved and thrived over the past thirty three years.

Many women who began as participants, continue as volunteers and employees- over half of our current staff were program participants. With a new educational foundation and access to resources, thousands of community members have demonstrated that they indeed have Unlimited Potential!

Now, Unlimited Potential continues to serve hundreds of families every year through General Education Development classes, English as a Second Language classes, Early Childhood Development classes, and through civic engagement by a team of Promotoras.
