Are you looking for something to do during the summer
working with more youth like you?.

The Latino Youth Collective provides resources and opportunities for youth to engage in personal and community development through critical pedagogy, grassroots organizing, and collective action.

Critical Pedagogy

We believe every student has the ability to recognize the connections between their individual experiences and the social contexts in which they are embedded. Every student is an expert of his/her own reality and has the ability to take constructive action.

Grassroots Organizing

We believe innovation is meant to be indigenous that is why we employ  Flexible Mechanisms for Organic Formation to bring about social transformation

Collective Action

We believe the process of developing critical consciousness is fundamental to creating viable social transformation where the collective wisdom is employed to benefit the decision-making process.
