Youth & Education
For the past 29 years, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) in southern Arizona has promoted the importance of learning and how vital it is to all children. By providing educational assistance to the youth in our community through various initiatives and programs, LULAC has worked to encourage and motivate students to remain in school, set goals, and reinforce education as the key to success.
Nationally, our efforts have been realized through our commitment to sponsoring students to attend the LNESC Washington Youth Leadership Seminar and by providing scholarships in coordination with LULAC's National Scholarship Foundation which to date has provided more than a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships. Locally, LULAC has established the Manuel de Jesus Alvarado Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships to local students an was instrumental collaborator in the founding of the Hispanic Student Endowment Fund at Pima Community College.
LULAC’s comprehensive approach to serve student needs has led our efforts to be recognized nationally by past President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former First Lady Barbara Bush, the National Latino Children's Institute, and the LULAC National Educational Service Centers. Locally, our efforts have been recognized by Pima County Government, the City of Tucson, the Metropolitan Education Commission, the Arizona NAACP, and most recently by the Tucson Hispanic Coalition.
LULAC strives to promote, develop, and enhance leadership skills among youth in Pima County. The philosophy behind the Youth Leadership Conference for the last 29 years has been to encourage and motivate students to remain in school, set goals and reinforce education as the key to success. Another key factor has been to expose students to an environment that fosters positive relationships among peers, teachers and the community.
This year’s conference targets 8th through 12th grade students, and encourages them to stay in school, to set their goals and to realize that the key to success is through education. In addition, the conference is an effort to expose high school students to life on a college campus. The 30th annual Youth Leadership Conference will be held at Pima Community College - West Campus. Additional Information coming soon.
