More than 1,000 high school students found their community at Grand Valley May 6 during a Latino youth conference.
The conference was hosted by the Advocates for Latino Student Advancement in Michigan Education (Alsame), a nonprofit organization committed to making college education a reality for Latino students in Michigan.
Michael Guerra, GVSU admissions counselor and conference co-chair, opened the conference at the Fieldhouse Arena and told the audience "this is what community looks like."
"After today, don't feel like you are alone," said Guerra, also vice chair of Alsame. "If you have questions about college or need resources at any time after today, let us know."
