Our mission is: to provide Latino students opportunities to basic and higher education in our community, raising and distribute funds from elementary enrichment programs (Young Readers K-1st grade), scholarships to attend institutions of higher education and/or ESL classes, entrepreneurship training, and career training; to disseminate information to high schools and Latino students about their opportunities for higher education and scholarship funds from LULAC Ohio Educational Foundation.
LULAC Scholarship Program
The LULAC Cincinnati Council held its 17th Annual Scholarship Recipients’ Celebration on October 26 at Northern Kentucky University. The theme of this year’s event was “Reaching New Heights.” This was an in-person event which allowed us to reunite again as a community. During the event, LULAC honored 30 college scholarship recipients for their scholastic achievement. The students are inspiring examples of people who are making a significant difference in the Hispanic community. We are grateful to P&G, Center for Closing the Gap and John Pepper for their support and partnership. Applications for 2023 LULAC Scholarships will be available on January 31, 2023
LULAC Young Readers program
Young Readers is a program that instills the love of reading in children at an early age (kindergarten to the 1st grade) and teaches the parents the importance that reading has in the success of their children in school. This is an afterschool program. Currently we have two programs at AMIS and two at Rising Star Academy, thanks to Procter and Gamble’s sponsorship. There are many volunteer opportunities for tutoring and mentorship at both schools.
LULAC Washington Youth Leadership Seminar (WYLS)
Every year, LULAC Cincinnati sends a High School Senior to Washington DC where they spend a week attending leadership and advocacy training. (WYLS) is LNESC’s annual leadership development program that brings together approximately 50+ future rising Latino leaders from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico to Washington, DC and immerses them in a specific public policy area. Students undergo leadership training, advocacy training, and peer bonding exercises, resulting in a tightknit group of leaders engaged and energized to make a difference in the Latino community.
