LIA Youth Conference

May 26, 2019

Latinos In Action is a program that offers an asset-based approach to bridging the graduation and opportunity gap for Latino students, working from within the educational system to create positive change and the end goal of this organization is to empower Latino youth to lead and strengthen their communities through college and career readiness.

That is why UCF and LIA partnered this year and LIA hosted their first annual LIA Youth Conference in our campus. Gabriella Coelho and Alina volunteered for this event by preparing over 900 goody bags with other LAS students so that they could be handed out at the conference.
