Annual Youth Summit Latinos Destinados a Triunfar 2022

Annual Youth Summit Latinos Destinados a Triunfar 2022

Our annual Latinos Destinados a Triunfar event was a success and you were an important part of it, for that reason we would like to share with our entire community part of what happened.

On Thursday October 27 we had a successful event with a record attendance of over 500 youth from over 50 Bronx high schools.

Our Young Latinos were approached by personalities at the top of their industry, sharing their success stories to inspire our Latino leaders of tomorrow. It is important that our youth learn to trust who they are. Remember that your future is created by what you do today. 

Thanks to our honorable panelists.

The night was full of surprises and activities to inspire and motivate our Latino leaders of tomorrow to continue their path to success and invite them to invest in their education.

Our Latino youths were exposed to various panels discussions and met leaders from the aerospace industry, healthcare, education, business, finance, entertainment media, and design.

We hope you have left with great inspiration for your future path. We look forward to supporting you on your journey and seeing all that you will accomplish. We hope to see you again at next year’s Youth Summit or at upcoming activities and events listed on our social media and website.

Our mission is to Empower the next generation of latino leaders.
