There is an amazing program at CU Boulder with a phenomenal organization UMAS y Mecha partnered with the Center for Cultural Engagement which will allow female high school students of color the opportunity to stay for a week at CU Boulder. There is no expense charged to families.  Please see the link and information below. This organization will transport students even as far as Pueblo!

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 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.

Application Deadline is May 25th.You will be contacted regarding your acceptance status into the Aquetza Program by June 1st. For further information or questions, please contact/ Para obtener más informacíon o con preguntas, por favor contacto:Jason Romero Jr. Magnolia Landa-Posas Roberto De Mata 719-821-0762(English) 720-474-8450 (English, Spanish) 303-641-7762 (English, Spanish)
