Latino Youth Program

  • The purpose of the Latino Youth Program (LYP) is to serve and support Latino young men holistically throughout their life and academic journey. Central to the program is providing students with opportunities, support systems, and mentoring based supports that takes into consideration the strengths, needs, and interests of students (youth voice-and-choice). Consequently, the overall goal of the program is to foster: overall wellbeing, positive youth-adult and peer relationships, a sense of belonging, positive youth development, and school connectedness in program youth. In doing so, students will graduate being life, college, and /or career ready. We will update the website and let families know once meeting dates and times are finalized.
