Empower Latinos to become strong leaders in their communities by understanding the role that community organizing, teambuilding, and education play in their lives. Through field trips, arts and media projects, workshops, and discussions the group provides an opportunity for young Latinos to address issues pertinent to their experiences.
Jovenes Con Propósito works to build and support a community of Latino youth to defend immigrant rights and to inspire and empower a new generation to act for meaningful social change and economic justice. We recognize that the youth are not our future leaders, they are our present leaders. They are the ones that drive the work that we support. We understand the importance of having immigrant youth active in the decisions that impact their own destiny.
In partnership with local universities, the program provides our youth one-on-one academic tutoring sessions, academic success seminars, college tours, and advice regarding scholarships and college access.
