Abstract (Summary)

Many Latino immigrant families are often marginalized, making them vulnerable to facing academic, cultural, and economic barriers. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to develop a mentoring program for Latino youth at risk for not completing high school to increase their interest in pursuing higher education. The proposed program would provide one-to-one mentorship for Latino youth who are currently involved with activities at Youth Collective Speaks in San Fernando, California. The goal of this mentoring program is to improve students’ and their parent’s awareness of higher education availability and to help these youth and their families become more aware of financial resources for college. The potential funding source for this grant is the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation as this program coincides with the goals of this foundation. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of the project.
