Literacy Program Class of 2009

Among many graduation celebrations this summer, 28 high school students attended their own graduation at California State University, Dominguez Hills on Friday, June 19.

These students completed HOPE’s Youth Leadership Through Literacy Program, which through a partnership between the CSU and Hispanas Organized for Political Equity (HOPE), reaches almost 300 high-school age Latinas every year with the college message. The YLTLP prepares high school age Latinas to apply and succeed in college.
