On Saturday, October 5th ten of our male students in grades 6/7/8 participated in the Encuentros Leadership Conference at MiraCosta College with Ms. Camacho and Ms. Salvino. What a powerful experience for our 6/7/8 boys who participated in this event. Encuentros is a college event geared toward young men of Hispanic decent regarding opportunities related to higher education.
The Encuentros Leadership Conference primary focus is on guiding and motivating young men to finish high school and to attend college to open their opportunities for their future. On this day, students met many prominent professionals and gathered information by attending workshops on possible careers they would like to pursue in the future.
