Most parents want their children to go to college, they're just not sure how to get them there. That's where the Aguila Youth Leadership Institute comes in.
Rosemary Ybarra-Hernandez and her husband started the program when it was time for their daughter to start looking for a college to attend.
Ybarra-Hernandez realized finding a college really isn't that easy, and she knew if she was having a tough time of it, others parents were likely having the same issues.
The non-profit organization provides a unique college access program for Latino/Latina youth that provides a web of support through consistency and powerful messaging.
The organization's goal is to empower and prepare Latino/Latina youth for college admissions and graduation through a unique approach based on a greater cultural understanding as a guide to personal, academic and professional excellence as future Latino/Latina leaders.
