ABOUT

Our mission is to increase and enhance healthy youth development and education success, through family engagement, access, participation, advocacy and leadership. We promote high school graduation of Latino students and provide access to college preparedness programs. LYDC provides leadership opportunities for Latino families and Latino youth in order to create a standing relationship between the school system and students and their families. We provide spaces for Latino students and their families to learn how the education system works and ways they can participate and advocate for the improvement of our education system.
LYDC has served the Latino community in Hennepin County for more than six years, providing weekly trainings, college and university field trips, and healthy youth activities in a safe and supportive environment in the heart of Minneapolis. And with the support of community members like you together we can continue to advocate for every Latino student with support, tools and resources to achieve their academic and life goals.
