Juntos Adelante: Building Community at the LatinX Leadership Summit

On April 28, YES Prep hosted the second LatinX Leadership Summit of the year. The event, which offers students the opportunity to celebrate identity and engage in leadership development, drew 194 students, 25 staff members, and 15 professional guests. Among the guests were four LatinX YES Prep Board Members, Tom Castro, Luly Castillo, Luis Elizondo-Thomson, and Eric Calderon, who spoke on a panel and shared their personal stories of overcoming challenges. In the afternoon, students prepared presentations on successful initiatives on their campuses, case studies of failures they’d experienced, and plans for next year.
