GRCS scholars will participate in a three day youth summit at the University of Wisconsin. 

This spring Galapagos Rockford Charter School is participating in the  Latino Youth Summit.  This is an opportunity to celebrate Latinx identities, culture and heritage on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Badger Precollege and Juntos Wisconsin (EN) are excited to welcome current Latinx 6th, 7th and 8th-grade scholars to participate in this three-day event. The summit strives to guide scholars through their transition from middle school to high school and beyond in higher education and career endeavors. This year’s theme will be Quién soy yo? The journey of discovering oneself at the intersection of age milestones and heritage. Through culturally relevant workshops and presentations, scholarss will explore concepts of identity, college/career preparation and Latin appreciation. By connecting scholars to university and community resources, people and opportunities, students can continue to grow and foster their passions and dreams beyond the summit.

Scholars will go to Madison from  March 25-March 27.

$50 cost includes summit, transportation, hotel and food.
