Connecting Latinx

The Challenge

Latinx across the country lack mentors in high school and college. Without any guidance, individuals are simply lost. There's no one to advise him/her on a path to undergraduate school and, eventually, a career of choice. Without mentorship, it precludes the kinds of deep relationships that lead to professional advancement.

 Mentorship has been shown to have significant positive effects on at-risk and underrepresented students, but this ongoing guidance is critical in helping them progress through post-secondary education and training programs and, ultimately, in the workforce. We need more mentors and leaders of color to help shepherd our youth as they navigate the highly competitive job market where coveted skills, access and professional networks are critical to success.

Soledad O'Brien, journalist and host of "American Graduate Day"

Our Response

Mentorship is important, not only because of the knowledge and skills students can learn from mentors but also because mentoring provides professional socialization and personal support to facilitate success in school and beyond. "It gives individuals access to top leaders’ thinking and their experiences — how they got to where they are.” With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new ways of connecting Latinx across the country.
