The Juventud Program is an after school program that provides academic support, parent engagement, and leadership development to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The word “juventud” means “youth” in Spanish and many of our Juventud members are Spanish speaking individuals and/or identify as Latinx. Our program is for any student who is open minded and is interested in learning about different cultures. The program is run as a collaboration between MMSD and Centro Hispano and meets right after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays in room 227. The first hour is spent working on homework with the help of tutors/mentors and then the second hour is spent doing mini-activities and workshops until 4:50 pm. Workshops and activities focus on cultural education and career exploration and involve bringing in guest speakers and performers to work with the kids. With the help of our volunteer tutors, our Juventud students receive the academic support needed to be prepared for high school!
PEOPLE Program (applications due in spring of 6th grade)
The mission of the PEOPLE program is to help students successfully make each transition from middle school to high school and from high school to college. Approximately 1,300 students currently participate in the PEOPLE Program ranging from second grade through undergraduate college level. We began in 1999 with 66 eager ninth-graders from Milwaukee public high schools who are now completing college degrees and entering the workforce. The PEOPLE Program has admitted 359 students to the UW–Madison under our scholarship program
The success of the program may be attributed to our dedicated K-12 education partners, to our supportive parents, to a solid foundation provided by the university and private donors and, most importantly, to the persistent need for such programming in the state of Wisconsin. Together, we are making college accessible to more students of color and/or those from low-income families.
