Al Éxito’s goals are to provide Latinx students with programs and extensive support services that build knowledge, access, and opportunities to:
1) achieve higher education and career goals;
2) develop leadership and civic engagement skills to build equitable Latino representation;
3) nurture well-being through cultural identity development.
Programs are open for all students, and all activities are free.
Al Exito Middle School weekly after-school programs provide a curriculum that is culturally relevant and asset-based that preserves and celebrates cultural values and transitions while promoting leadership and academic achievement in a safe environment. We create a foundation for youth to develop confidence and skills to explore opportunities in their lives with a sense of purpose.
Movimiento Al Éxito, High School Program provides an intensive weekly afterschool leadership, college preparatory, academic achievement, and civic engagement program.
Movimiento interweaves three key strategies to develop student youth leaders:
1) research/ data analysis;
2) leadership through civic engagement;
3) youth-led action. Students explore their identity and world while being empowered to make a change.
We are youth from the Movimiento Al Exito program, who aspired to establish our own business to give even more back to our community. We are influential Latinx leaders engaged in our community!
