Mission: The Latino Institute, Inc. is a private, non-profit, charitable organization. Our mission is to serve as a bridge between the Latino community, and the educational, cultural, governmental, social and economic institutions of society by providing accurate, factual, and timely information on the barriers and challenges affecting the education, growth, development and well-being of that community and by developing, recommending, and advocating solutions and actions which may serve as a catalyst for change. Our particular interest is educational achievement for Latinos throughout the educational continuum and the promotion of Latino culture in America. We believe, as many reasonable people believe, that educational achievement is the key to success in life. At the same time, we believe in respecting, fostering and promoting the Latino cultural heritage, especially amongst our young, as part of the development of Latinos everywhere. In the educational pathway, we are uniquely interested in college retention issues and the promotion of college Latino students towards graduate schools, Ph.D. programs and the professions. We promote these tenets through major events, conference, seminars, lectures, performances, programs, and other activities. The Latino Institute, Inc. is a national organization located in New Jersey.

I have been privileged by helping the Latino Institute working with their Latino Scholars Program. In addition, I have supported the activities and events supporting parents.
Specifically, I volunteered for the 8th Annual Latino Expo and Parents Conference this October. The conference was fantastic!! The organization knwos how to host a very professional event, covering the needs of both bilingual and Anglo parents. This is a great organization.
