TWIN FALLS — Jose Enriquez’s vision of launching more elective-based courses in Magic Valley schools through his organization Latinos In Action is about to become a reality.
As on of the recipient of the 2020 Chobani Community Impact Fund Grants, Latinos In Action have $45,000 over two years to launch more of its program at Magic Valley schools.
“Our mission is to empower Latino youth to lead and strengthen their communities, but do it in a way that we want them to, first of all, understand they have a lot of assets and talents, then help them develop those (bilingualism, bi-culturalism), and help them develop to give back,” Enriquez said. “It is a very much a service-oriented, leadership, development, and college-readiness course. And this what makes the biggest difference.”
