Improving College Access & Degree Completion
The educational future for Latino male students is in a state of crisis, a trend that has been especially evident at the secondary and post-secondary levels in recent years. Encuentros Leadership was formed to address the critical educational, social and economic issues affecting the quality of education and life opportunities for Latino male students within our communities. Encuentros has taken a multi-faceted approach at reducing the dropout rates, increasing graduation rates, and maintaining students on the college completion track.
