The aim of the program was to build resiliency among at-risk Latino youth and was implemented in a large, public, independent school district in the Southwest United States. The data were examined through pre- (n = 300) and post-surveys (n = 272). Results are consistent in describing a positive program environment and the pre- to post-item gains related to encouraging Latino youth to seek high school graduation and pursue college as an attainable goal.
