School Based Programs
Latino Network believes a thriving community and a stable economy tomorrow depend upon investment in our youth and families today. Our school based programs for Latino youth and their families support academics, high school graduation, and college and career readiness.
Latino Network’s programs build on one another to introduce Latino/a youth to concepts of leadership, service, success, and positive cultural identity. We use proven, culturally responsive curricula from the National Council of La Raza. Together these programs grow student and parent leaders and promote a college-going culture.
100% of seniors in our Escalera college preparation program successfully graduated high school and enrolled in college or vocational programs last year!
