2021 Student Leadership Series Launch

The USHLI will launch it 2021 Student Leadership Series (SLS) on Thursday, February 18, 2021, at their 39th National Conference. The SLS serves as the cornerstone of USHLI’s campaign to create a culture of education in which academic persistence will become a priority in every Latino household. The program focuses on motivating 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. Since 2011, the SLS has reached over 820,000 participants across 39 states and over 2,900 organizations.

 The SLS will be presented in a virtual format. Our program will begin with a spoken word artist followed by a Rally featuring nationally prominent motivational speakers who will bring words of encouragement  and motivation about resiliency, educational excellence, and the value of continuing education.

Following the Rally, a workshop on financial aid will be presented and students will have the opportunity to attend  a national Undergraduate College Recruitment Fair with an estimated 300 colleges and universities expected to attend on our virtual platform.

Registration for this year’s SLS launch and Undergraduate College Recruitment Fair is free with a completed registration.

If you are an educator and your school would like to participate, please confirm the number of students you will be registering for the event. The SLS and College Recruitment Fair is free for high school students and staff only. In order to participate in the College Fair, each participating student, will have to register on our virtual platform in order to interact with each college/university. There’s no limit to the number of participating students from your school. The deadline for students to register is Wednesday, February 17th, 2021. Please reach out to Jose Javier Flores, if you have any further questions or to see if you qualify.
