In partnership with Encuentros Leadership (a non-profit organization serving Latinx males), Cuyamaca College held its annual Encuentros Leadership and Education Summit on March 5-6. In its third year, the Summit seeks to reduce high school drop-out rates and promote college attendance for Latinx middle and high school male students.
The Summit served nearly 100 families remotely both with a food drive (held on March 5) and virtual workshops on March 6. Students from our local GUHSD middle and high schools, and the SDCOE court schools participated. Local professionals from a variety of career fields and educational backgrounds conducted virtual workshops and informative lectures for students.
