“I think about the experiences I had at Congreso all the time. I learned more there than I have in any educational endeavor since, even though I’ve been really fortunate and enjoyed a fantastically rich formal education. I learned and grew professionally during my time at Congreso through both structured professional development opportunities and during staff-led problem-solving sessions. I never doubted the deep commitment Congreso colleagues brought to our work and valued all their diverse perspectives.  I feel lucky to have been able to spend my “formative years” as part of the Congreso family.” – Andrea Sáenz, First Deputy Commissioner, Chicago Public Library
