HISPA will share how you can have a the life-changing role simply sharing your story with students in the communities where you live and work. The education and resources needed to fully participate in America’s competitive academic and economic markets are unevenly distributed across race/ethnic groups, and the Latino dropout rate remains higher than that of Blacks, Whites and Asians. Lacking a high school diploma limits college access and career mobility, posing serious social and economic concerns. HISPA mobilizes Latino professionals to serve as role models to middle school students, inspiring their academic performance and achievement by sharing their personal and professional stories and demonstrating that they, too, can achieve their dreams through hard work and education. Given the urgency of our work, HISPA has launched Vision 2020: our effort to empower our careers, our companies, and most importantly, our communities, by sharing 20,000 inspirational stories by 2020.
