Latinx Leadership Summit Fall 2018

On January 20, 2018, YES Prep hosted the annual Latinx Leadership Summit at the Gulfton campus. The Latinx Leadership Summit is an opportunity for students from different YES Prep campuses to come together as a community not only to celebrate identity, but also to engage in leadership development that will allow them to take action in the future. The event drew 211 students from 15 campuses, 31 staff members, and 32 guests from 15+ professions. During the summit, YES Prep students:

  • Met three Latinx YES Prep board members

  • Presented action plans to their peers
  • Registered to vote (if of age)
