Latinx Kickoff 2023-24 by NWA Hispanic Leadership Council
On September 14, 2023 the Latinx on the Rise Mentoring Program celebrated the closing of the Summer Internship and kick-off of the 2023-24 Mentoring Cohort. The event was held at the Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC).
Through the Summer Internships 12 students had the opportunity to earn internship credit and work with one of our Community Partners. We appreciate Botanical Gardens of the Ozark, Canopy NWA, Community Development NWA, Family Network, Latinas en Bici, The Momentary, Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter, NWA Continuum of Care, Reflexions Music Series, SoNA and the University of Arkansas Community Music School for their partnership.
The 2023-24 Mentoring Cohort is the largest yet, with 40 registered mentees paired with 40 mentors. The students from John Brown University, NWACC and the University of Arkansas and their mentors initiated their mentoring journey that will last through the whole academic year.
