Santa Ana, California (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
THINK Together’s Executive Director of Strategic Development and Partnerships, Alicia Maciel, will speak about the educational challenges facing Latino youth at the 2013 LEAD Summit to be held next Wednesday at Cal State University, San Bernardino.
Maciel will be one of several panelists for the forum series titled, “Sustaining, Replicating, and Bringing to Up-to-Scale those Programs that Work for Latino Youth.” Those involved in the forum come from educational organizations like THINK Together, which are making a positive difference in Latino education.
For many, Latino education represents a civil rights issue for the younger generations. Latino students are one of the hardest hit groups in the current educational crisis and this is where most attention is needed.
Panelists will be discussing cross sector solutions to support Latino educational awareness.
This forum series will be held on Wednesday, March 27 starting at 11:15 a.m. at the Santos Manuel Student Union on the campus of California State University, San Bernardino.
