The Top 100 Latino high school juniors in the Greater Washington area have been selected to participate in this year’s Youth Leadership Institute (YLI). The program is designed to give these students the practical tools they need to successfully apply to top universities, have full access to financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and excel in school and beyond. Selected students will experience what it’s like to live on a college campus, participate in college and career workshops, interact with college students and various professionals who serve as mentors, and develop the skills to become leaders in their communities.
Begins: Thursday, August 7, 2014, 9:00 am
HSF and Wells Fargo are committed to providing resources to help students achieve academic success. YLI students will be exposed to empowering experiences that will nurture their flourishing leadership skills, so that they will go on to become great leaders in their communities and in our nation.
