Latinx Youth Programs
Cultivating the Leaders del Futuro
Our youth programs engage youth at each academic level and developmental level in creative grade-appropriate learning experiences focused on culture awareness, the Spanish language, community engagement, and volunteerism. By combining these educational efforts with a variety of recreation, social health, and parent initiatives Latinx Flint creates its comprehensive formula for success.
We want our parents to be connected with the important opportunities that develop young children emotionally, socially and educationally.
Our language learning and culture awareness take a two-generational approach towards a bilingual community. Starting while young, youth will grow up familiar wit h the language skills needed to be successful in the future.
As youth are on the brink of entering the workforce and continuing their education, we provide an experience to have critical thinkers that are community focused as an aligned collective.
We support community with an annual scholarship to encourage the number of educated leaders and trade skill professionals to support the building of a healthy economy.
