They shared their journeys filled with challenges, failures, lessons learned and successes. The most rewarding aspect of this program is when these youth envision themselves as successful professionals and leaders because journeys shared by our Cultura Ambassadors.

SVL Inspire Higher Tour 2017 @ Cristo Rey High School

 

Silicon Valley Latino’s Inspire Higher Tour engages numerous successful and inspiring Latino professionals and asks them to share their stories via various platforms but primarily through moderated panel discussions with an end goal to inspire Latino youth throughout Silicon Valley to prepare for careers in STEAM.

The primary component of the Inspire Higher Initiative is the “The Inspire Higher Tour,” a high touch/high impact element comprised of a touring and rotating panel of Latino professionals visiting numerous schools where the student body is predominantly Latino.

This semester the Inspire Higher Tour is visiting four schools and will conduct five panel discussions. The schools include: Cristo Rey High School, Luis Valdez Leadership Academy, ACE Franklin McKinley Middle School and ACE High School.

The moderated panel discussions are scheduled for 40 to 45 minutes to be followed by a 15 to 20 minute “meet & greet” segment where “high-touch” connections allow for the magic to happen.

We believe that having STEAM programs is a very good option for our Latino youth. However, the true challenge is that no matter how great a program may be if the student does not have the self-esteem, ambition, aspiration and confidence to attempt the program the student will fail to capitalize on the opportunity at hand. We further believe that if we create an environment and opportunities for our students where they connect with successful Latino professionals they will be inspired to engage in STEAM programs and succeed in them. Through our initial Inspire Higher Tour we witnessed the immediate inspirational effect our program had with participating students.

Adelante!

We are delighted to present Cuban Love a short film by Cultura Ambassador, Nancy Rosales. Nancy recently visited Cuba with her friend Bobby and while there she decided to shoot a short film using her iPhone 6s.  She interviews locals, captures various shots that provide us with a very intimate look at daily Cuban life. One of the best elements is how she captured Cuban music and incorporated it as part of the soundtrack. Nancy thank you for capturing this authentic perspective of Cuban life and it’s beautiful people.
