CLUES’ Youth in Action (YA!) Program empowers Latino youth to achieve their dreams and become strong leaders in their communities. The only youth mentorship program in the Twin Cities that focuses specifically on Latino youth, YA! helps students build upon their leadership, teamwork and communication skills, become familiar and comfortable with the college application process, and cultivate strong, personal relationships with adult mentors.
Since the program began eight years ago, a remarkable 100% of YA! students have graduated high school and 87% entered college—rates significantly higher than the state average for Latino high school graduation, currently 66%.
Become a champion of our YA! Program today through supporting our YA! Scholarship Fund.
With your support, each YA! student participant will receive a modest stipend upon graduating high school to help overcome some of the high costs associated with attending college. By giving today, you will help play a part in increasing educational and career opportunities for our youth, and ultimately invest in the future leaders of our communities.
Thanks to a generous match from Land O' Lakes Amigos group, every dollar you give will be matched up to $5,000 – doubling your impact!
