FUTURO IN THE NEWS!
Hispanic or Latinos are projected to be the largest minority group in the United States. Our goal is to ensure our students graduate with a degree in one hand and a job offer in the other. Research supports that post-secondary degree attainment greatly increases social and economic prosperity inter-generationally.
One of the greatest predictors of retention and graduation rates is student engagement. FUTURO ensures that our members are engaged and supported on their colleges and universities. FUTURO partners with Advisors, Student Life, Academic Affairs, Career Services, and Diversity Affairs on campus. In addition, FUTURO creates lifelong bonds within peer groups, extending our sense of community and familia on campus. Our student officers are encouraged to become leaders of their chapters. Each semester campus leaders participate in leadership development. With the support of our Executive Board, Employer Advisory Board, Community Leaders, and Advisors students connect with professionals during our leadership day, workshops, seminars, or conferences.
FUTURO’s fall and spring leadership conferences create meaningful opportunities for our students to connect with industry professionals and hone their career-readiness skills. At these conferences, we focus on networking and building professional support; in addition, we celebrate students who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to career exploration, preparation and planning, networking, and leadership.
