Leadership Institute

Leadership Institute Description: 

Since 2006, the Encuentros Leadership Academy has served over 500 aspiring college-bound Latino males attending San Diego high schools. The Academy was launched in response to the historically low post-secondary education achievement levels of Latino males.

The Encuentros Leadership Academy is a college preparatory program that focuses on building and developing leadership competency of its attendees. Part of this is a journey of self-discovery where they must ask themselves the questions: “Who am I? Where am I going? How am I going to get there?” By fostering their leadership skills, students gain confidence in their abilities to lead in their communities and complete their college education, and beyond.
