Minorities Are Becoming The Majority In The U.S.

April 22, 2012 § Leave a comment

Latino youth are 2.5x less likely to earn a bachelor's degree than their white friends.

Did you know that 9 out of 10 Latino teens believe that a college degree is important for success, but only 5 out of 10 think it’s possible.

Considering population shifts and graduation rates remaining constant, by 2042 the country’s overall graduation rate will decline by 22%.

A less educated future will mean: more low-paying jobs, a lower national GDP, and more national debt.

We can not allow this to happen.

I am proud to say that New Futuro was formed to solve these issues.

Offering bilingual, financial aid, scholarship, career, and networking resources to parents and students; helping Latino families achieve their dreams; New Futuro plans to change the face of Hispanic education.

But New Futuro can’t do it alone.  We need you.
