740.jpg
Aquetza is a free, 10-day summer residential program on the campus of CU Boulder that provides high school students with strong ties to Chicano/Latino communities from across Colorado with an interactive, academic enrichment experience focused on engaging Chican@/Latin@ 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.

The 2018 summer camp will run July 13-22. Visit the program website for more information and to apply online. The application deadline is May 5, 2018.

This is a public program. For more information, please visit the program website.
