Mary E. Campos Scholarship 


The Al Éxito scholarship is based on Mrs. Campos’ principles for active community leaders, civic engagement, volunteerism, empowering the Latino community, and overcoming challenges. 

Youth Mental Health Taskforce

Al Éxito released a statewide study of our participant’s mental health and wellbeing issues that hinder their success. During program sessions, students identified numerous challenges they experienced related to stress and mental health. In response to these experiences, the Al Éxito organization conducted a study of the perspectives of Latinx youth on mental health care between March and May 2018.


Participants attended programs in both urban and rural areas and were enrolled in both middle and high schools. The Al Éxito Youth Mental Health Taskforce analyzed the data and created recommendations to improve Latinx youth mental health for the Iowa Department of Education and local school districts.
