How National Hispanic Institute at San Antonio impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Through our curriculum we promote leadership by examining the character, ethics, beliefs and morals of high achieving youth but in particular latino youth and work to engage youth in the global Community building on our own Community assets. Students within our organization are given the opportunity to test and improve their written and verbal communication skills through organized discussions and debates about issues that impact today's community. Students gain confidence in public speaking and an appreciation of communication as a powerful tool of leadership. Students gain experience creating content-rich arguments, communicating them through powerful, eloquent expression, and carefully analyzing the arguments presented by their peers. We urge students to begin to view themselves through a different set of social lenses and shift the paradigm by which they view the community. Furthermore there is a call for these youth to become crafters of a new tomorrow, as they are already leaders in their own right. By using this training we ask young leadership to further develop local latino resources. Our work helps move the needle toward the SA2020 vision for increased civic engagement and education.
