Outcomes and Success
Since our launch, Latino U has had tremendous impact reaching thousands of students and parents eager to receive much needed information and guidance. Our bilingual, culturally-relevant programs focus on increasing Latino youth’s access to college resources and guiding them through the process from their senior year of high school until college graduation.
