Description
Latino Memphis has partnered with the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation to create Caminos, a mentorship program for high school students in Memphis area. Latino high school students have the highest dropout rate of any minority. Studies show that youth with mentors not only have a higher graduation rate, but it increases self confidence and goal setting abilities. Caminos aims to provide a path for students to cultivate their talents and set academic goals through one-to-one mentoring.
