Camino Al Futuro Program

Camino al Futuro is a Summer/Fall year round Leadership Academy for recently arrived immigrant Latino/Latina high school students currently in the 9th grade and from the New York City area that have been in the United States less than five years. Our aim is to provide a supportive and safe atmosphere that recognizes student’s narratives as recently arrived immigrant youth and create spaces that nurture their learning opportunities until they have graduated from high school and moved on to college or other post-secondary options. Once you are admitted to the program, you are granted with the opportunity to participate in a continuation program until you have graduated from High School and moved on to college or other post-secondary choices.  

In addition, Camino Al Futuro will introduce you to discussions around culture identity and other topics that affect immigrant youth. This experience will help you develop interpersonal, social and research skills that will contribute to your success in your own self-exploration.  You will be exposed to curriculum that will include but will not be limited to workshops and field trips that will guide you through the college research process; admissions requirements; information on college entrance exams SAT, ACT; personal statement essay tips; and financial aid literacy. As a program graduate, you will be certified as a “Camino Al Futuro Scholar” which will give you the tools necessary to act as mentor and/or advisor within your school and community

Students that are admitted are required to attend all sessions of program starting on Saturday June 25th-September 17th.  

This includes workshops on the following:

  1. Team building activities
