What is the Latino Youth Summit?

Results of studies show that preparation for college success needs to begin early and must be sustained throughout the school years. One goal of the Summit is to address the Latino achievement gap in northwest Ohio, and the reality of a growing Latino population. The Summit serves to instill feelings of pride in the students' heritage, along with the inspiration to strive for fulfillment of each student's potential towards creating a more promising future.

The Summit seeks to arm youth and families with college planning and career path information through sessions about pre-high school and pre-college coursework and information about various occupational fields. Emphasis is placed on the importance of skills in science, math and technology in today's job market.

Each Summit involves a keynote speaker chosen for their ties to the Latino community, their success in overcoming adversity, their message of hope, and their ability to engage a diverse body of students.

Latino Youth Summit Activities

The annual summit continues success hosting over 500 Latino junior high and high school youths. Included are hands-on activities in nursing and pharmacy, engineering, health professions, health & wellness, and real-world personal finances. The students also learn about career opportunities here and abroad and are given a mini-preview of the UT campus. The Summit provides various organizations with an opportunity to interact with the largest gathering of Latino youth from northwest Ohio.
