A group of 11th grade female students celebrated their graduation from HOPE’s Youth Leadership through Literacy Program on June 21.

The program provides college readiness, financial literacy, civic engagement, and life skills to underserved Latinas attending high schools throughout the state.

Reports from the HOPE program indicate that 98 percent of the participants graduate from high school on time and 84 percent enroll in college after high school graduation.

HOPE focuses on serving Latinas from underserved communities and helps them to develop college aspirations and to become civic-minded, community-driven individuals. The program reaches about 300 high school-aged Latinas annually.

The Youth Leadership through Literacy Program is a statewide education effort supported by the CSU Chancellor's Office.

HOPE -- Hispanas Organized for Political Equality -- was founded in 1989. See HOPE's website
