Latino Youth Development Services

The Latino Youth Development Program promotes positive, team-oriented activities and physical exercise for Latino male students in grades 7 through 10 who are enrolled in the FARMS (Free and Reduced-price Meals) program for low-income families. Each child involved with the program is provided opportunities to earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours required for graduation.

Our program begins in July with a six-week summer camp, where students participate in training and conditioning, SSL projects, and several trips. We work closely with students to track grades, pre/mid/post self-esteem surveys, and behavior in school, in the program, and at home.

For information on eligibility, please contact the Community Services Office at 240-314-8310.
