Creating a Culture of Education
The Student Leadership Series (SLS) is the cornerstone of our campaign to create a culture of education in which academic persistence will become a priority in every Latino household and with every family member – parents, grandparents, and students – will participate. It is our fundamental belief that it takes a family to educate a child.
The goal of our SLS is to ensure that every child has an opportunity to obtain the level of education that is consistent with his or her maximum potential and the opportunity to be successful in life. Our objectives are to motivate students to stay in school, improve their academic performance, graduate from college, and pursue and successfully complete some level of post-secondary education or training. The SLS also includes a Professional Development for educators and Parent Leadership Training in selected cities/communities.
