Aquetza Youth Leadership, Education, and Community Empowerment Program
Aquetza is a free, one-week summer residential program on the campus of CU-Boulder which will provide high school students with strong ties to Chican@/Latin@ and historically marginalized communities from across Colorado with an interactive, academic enrichment experience focused on engaging youth in examining the history, literature, health science, and relevant social and political issues surrounding their cultural communities, through rigorous academic work in ethnic studies, writing, reading, and science.
Through our programming, attendees will have opportunities to see themselves as scholars - as holders and producers of new and valuable knowledge - as well as a chance to develop the skills to become leaders in their communities, pursue higher education, and make positive change in their worlds. In 2016, Aquetza is scheduled to run between July 17th - 23rd. Please visit us at https://sites.google.com/a/colorado.edu/aquetza-program/home for more detailed information.
