Our Initiatives

Somos Carolina

Somos Carolina supports Latinx students (from 8th grade to college) on their journey to college by helping them embrace their cultural identity, become innovative problem-solvers, and thrive as conscious civic leaders in their communities and future college campuses.

Students begin their journeys with Somos Carolina during the Somos Carolina Summer Academy, a 3-week summer enrichment experience for rising eighth graders. This program is designed to help middle school and high school students embrace their culture, community, and leadership skills to ultimately be successful in high school, college, and life.

20 Under 20

Each year, LatinxEd launches North Carolina’s only competition focused on elevating the best and brightest Latinx students across the state.

Our Listmakers are problem solvers, change makers, and champions of solving challenges impacting their community. They are scholars and life-long learners, hungry to feed their minds! They are leaders–stepping up and taking a stand on issues they are passionate about.

Nuestro South

Nuestro South is a multimedia platform designed to lift up the voices of Latinxs telling their own narratives of what it means to grow up and live in the US South.

Join us as students, educators, and others from the LatinxEd community tell their stories and change the narrative of who we are and what we’re all about.

I could really see the impact of having identity and ethnic based studies. I left feeling even more confident in myself and my identity.
