Hosted on the UW-Madison Campus

Celebrating its 11th year, Latino Youth Summit is free two-day STEAM and college preparatory program for Latinx 7th and 8th grade students in the Dane County and surrounding areas across the state. Summit participants gather onto UW-Madison’s campus learning about the transition from middle school to high school to college, exploring possible college majors and career paths and learning about the resources available in the Dane County community to continue this exploration beyond the summit. Students attend workshops through a culturally relevant curriculum focusing on learning opportunities with Latinx identities and college admissions pathways.
