Mission: To encourage and support boys of Latino descent to achieve optimal performance in education
As a result of the collaborative efforts with our partners, males of Latino descent attending schools in Northern San Diego County will become contributing and participating citizens of this nation through improved educational opportunities, personal commitment and community involvement.
Overview: Encuentros Leadership of Northern San Diego County was organized in 2003 to address the alarmingly high school drop out rates of Latino males.
Encuentros Leadership was soon after formed to address the critical educational, social and economic issues impacting the quality of education and life opportunities for Latino boys within our community.
