The goal of the institute is to develop leadership skills in Oregon's high school migrant students. It exposes participants to college life and encourages them to attend. They are also encouraged to be proud of their heritage and to build goals towards their future. An expectation is for students to return and give back to their communities.
During the 2011 summer, there are three sessions at Oregon State University. Come explore each of the sessions with us as it unfolds! During each session, participants are divided into groups. Each group has its own unique blog to showcase. This page links to where participants share their experiences as well as to information about our staff.
Feel free to leave encouraging comments for our participants.
