Mission Statement

Latino Youth for Higher Education Program is composed of Latino as well as other minority college students and professionals with an interest in improving the quality of education for low income students, especially those of Latino origin and new to the country.

This organization focuses on helping to promote college awareness and success to minority students. This goal is achieved through the creation of workshops, tutoring, mentorship programs, college related activities, lesson plans, supporting undocumented Latino minorities with scholarships and fundraisers in order to assist in the closing the achievement gap across the nation.

Description

LYHEP has created different strategies in order to accomplish our goals. Our volunteers are pursuing different careers such as Accounting, Psychology, Marketing, Public Affairs, Journalism, and Finance & Investments. We approach high schools with a high percentage of minority students ot new comers and we offer the schools the following:

  • After School Programs
  • University Tours
  • LYHEP elective classes
  • College events (informationals, career days, and college months)
  • Parent Workshops
  • Mentorship Program
  • Tutoring Program
LYHEP provides workshops to the communities through partnerships with local community-based organizations such as the NICE organization and Make the Road New York. And with the help of the Latino general consulates, inform families about our program and what we can do.
