STEAM Team: Our year-round, after school and summer program for middle school students in Mission Hill/Roxbury integrates academic and enrichment programming to boost academic achievement, support science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) engagement, build social-emotional skills, and explore careers. Participants also have the opportunity to celebrate their culture and create positive relationships with adults. Many middle school participants transition into our Mission Possible program upon entering high school.
Mission Possible!: In grade 9, youth enroll in Mission Possible, an academic support and postsecondary success program aimed at promoting on-time graduation for youth and opening doors to higher education. At Sociedad Latina and through our school-based programming, youth participate in academic tutoring and skill building, SAT test preparation, early access to college credit, postsecondary success planning, mentoring, and college & career exploration activities. Every youth meets individually with an academic case manager to develop actionable plans for staying on track in school and reaching their education goals.
Academy for Latinos Achieving Success: After high school, youth join our Academy for Latinos Achieving Success (ALAS), which provides students with bilingual transition coaching through the first two years of college or career. Youth receive monthly one-on-one meetings with transition coaches and mentors, work readiness training, social-emotional support, and referrals to on-campus supports as needed.
