Year-Round Youth Leadership Development

The Next Wave of Leadership is Here

In response to the high need, the Miguel Contreras Foundation launched a year-round program for high school students. Our program offers students an opportunity to thrive, no matter their immigration status, and empower them to be at the forefront of change.

Our year-round program provides:

  • Updates on immigration policies
  • “Know Your Rights” education
  • College application and financial aid support
  • Opportunities for leadership development



“One of the most memorable experiences in the program was when I participated in an informational picket line with workers. That made me feel like part of a bigger community.” — Georgina
