One of the main opportunities for college students across the state of North Carolina to get involved with Juntos is through the Juntos Summer Academy. The Academy is a week long event at North Carolina State University where Latino High School youth participate in special university classes, college student panels, STEM activities, and leadership training. The Juntos Academy gives students the college experience for a week as they stay in college dorms, connect with college-age Team Captains, and learn what they need to do to get to and have success in college.
For more information on the Summer Academy, please visit the Juntos Academy page.
