The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), founded in 1929, is the oldest and most widely respected Latino civil rights organization in the United States of America. LULAC was created at a time in our country’s history when Latinos were denied basic civil and human rights, despite contributions to American society. The founders of LULAC created an organization that empowers its members to create and develop opportunities where they are needed most.
By forming or joining a LULAC Youth Council, high school students have the opportunity to make a difference and leave a lasting impact through their advocating efforts aimed at advancing the rights and issues that affect our Latino youth community.
Today, with approximately 135,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, LULAC is the largest and oldest Latino organization in the United States. LULAC advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of Latino Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 1000 councils nationwide. In addition, the LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC), LULACʼs educational arm, provides counseling services to more than 18,000 Latino students per year at fourteen regional centers.
LULAC provides more than half a million dollars in scholarships to Latino students each year, conducts citizenship and voter registration drives, develops low-income housing units, conducts youth leadership and mentoring programs, and seeks to empower the Latino community at the local, state, and national levels
The LULAC Youth is an entity designed to carry forth the work of LULAC at the teen‑age level and to serve as a training base for its members through social, civic, sports, and parliamentary activities.
The focus of the LULAC Youth program is the development of young people in bettering themselves and their community through positive educational experiences. LULAC Youth members shall be supported by responsible
LULAC adult members who have demonstrated an interest in the well being of our youth.
The 2014-2015 LULAC Youth Board is comprised of seven stellar leaders from across the United States and Puerto Rico. To contact the LULAC Youth Board or to stay up to date with LULAC Youth Council and Board activities, visit their personal website at www.lulacyouth.net.
