More than 70 middle school students from the Madison Metropolitan School District participated in the Latino Youth Summit this week. The two-day outreach event got students involved in culturally responsive workshops to explore their path from middle school to high school and college. It was organized by the UW–Madison School of Education; UW–Madison’s Office of the Vice Provost and Chief Diversity Officer, Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement; and the Centro Hispano Community Center.
