Challenge

Higher education is out of reach for many talented Latino/a graduates from undersourced high schools who lack the financial resources to attend college and do not qualify for loans and other scholarship assistance. SLI provides counsel and special programming to improve their chances for admission to college. SLI's scholarship fund makes their attendance affordable.

Solution

Students participate in an early college Poverty and Pluralism course alongside their mentors that exposes them to college work, complete self-designed structured volunteer service, receive SAT and ACT training to enhance test taking abilities.

Long-Term Impact

Providing promising Latino students with college education gives them the tools to succeed in college and assist their communities. This is critical to prevent the Latino population from forming a permanent underclass in society.
