Conex­ión Améri­c­as is pleased to invest in Cen­tro His­pano de East TN’s efforts to build the Lati­no Stu­dent Suc­cess Coali­tion. Cen­tro His­pano pro­pos­es to con­vene high school youth, com­mu­ni­ty edu­ca­tors, and allies to craft a shared pol­i­cy and advo­ca­cy agen­da that results in the increase of appro­pri­ate and equi­table sup­ports and resources for Lati­no stu­dents in Knox Coun­ty, with the goal of ensur­ing that more stu­dents grad­u­ate col­lege and career ready. Youth mem­bers will receive lead­er­ship train­ing, and togeth­er with oth­er mem­bers will devel­op an elec­tron­ic plat­form for shar­ing resources.
Cen­tro His­pano de East TN was found­ed in Knox Coun­ty in 2005 to con­nect Lati­no and oth­er mul­ti­cul­tur­al fam­i­lies to com­mu­ni­ty resources and they seek to pro­mote the empow­er­ment and inte­gra­tion of their fam­i­lies into the greater com­mu­ni­ty by pro­vid­ing edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams and ser­vices. They empha­size Eng­lish lan­guage instruc­tion for adults and edu­ca­tion­al enrich­ment for chil­dren in order to facil­i­tate inte­gra­tion, eco­nom­ic advance­ment, and civic par­tic­i­pa­tion.
