Juntos Academy

Juntos Academy is a weeklong experience at NC State University where 140 Latino High School youth participate in special university classes, college student panels, STEM activities, Arts, and leadership training. The Juntos Academy gives these Latino students the college experience for a week by letting them stay in college dorms, connecting with college age Team Captains, and learning what they need to do to get to and have success in college. The video above is a recap of the 2014 Juntos Academy.

Team Captains are individuals who act as mentors for these students and push them forward to do their very best.
