Latino Youth Development Services

The Latino Youth Development Program promotes positive, team-oriented activities and physical exercise for Latino male students in grades 7 through 10 who are enrolled in the FARMS (Free and Reduced-price Meals) program for low-income families. Each child involved with the program is provided opportunities to earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours required for graduation.

Our program begins in July with a six-week summer camp, where students have training and conditioning, Student Service Learning SSL project and several trips. We work closely with students to track grades, pre/mid/and post self-esteem surveys, behavior in school, in the program and at home.
