OK so I just discovered a really cool program within the Seattle School District. Maybe you can help me spread the word?

Guillermo Carvajal is launching the Latino Achievers Club, whose motto is Preparing Latino Boys for the Future. It's a school-based Latino project designed to give boys enhanced social and academic development, and will take place at three elementary schools in south seattle that show a high number of Latino students.

Guillermo is creating seminars and workshops designed to:

  1. Enhance Imagination and create independent learners
  2. Inspire a passion for science and math
  3. Encourage Career Exploration
  4. Teach Team Building

To get this off the ground, he needs leads for the following:

  • Facilitators for Public Speaking
  • Skilled trainers on time management who want to try a hand at working with Latino boys
  • Money Management and kids
  • Diet
  • Dress for Success
  • The Power of Words
  • Latino Identity: Re-affirmation of Cultural Identity
  • Latino mentors (male)
  • Latino motivational speakers
  • Self-Discipline
  • Also looking for trainers / facilitators that would do creative projects such as
    Model Rocket Building
  • Robotics
  • Other creative (with a math and science base) ideas.

If you or someone you know speaks Spanish and would like to lend your talents to this terrific cause, please contact Lead Coordinator Guillermo Carvajal at 206-252-0993 or


  1. Thanks for your note on this blog. It is of outmost importance that our Latino youth is prepared to take a role in the community and our society. Over 1/3 of our Latino population is under the age of 30, and by many accounts we are not ready to take the leadership that will be upon us rather quickly. We must create avenues that gives youth the moral character, strenght and judgnent to make our community stronger and our society closer to the democratic ideal.

    I wish you the best "no es muy tipico' for this blog and the supprot you are showing our kids and community.
