National Juntos Convening: A Thirteen Year Journey

Since 2007 Juntos has been bridging communities together with the goal of graduating Latino students from high school and supporting their journey to high education. On September 23, 2020, eleven land-grant Universities, Juntos partners, advocates, and investors will come together for the opening of the first National Juntos Convening to answer Why Juntos Matters to our communities and nation. On September 24th Juntos leaders from all eleven Universities will come together to set the stage for the future of Juntos within our eXtension system and communities with 2020 Vision. We will answer β€œWhy Juntos is here to Stay” through discussions on strengthening Juntos components, finalizing National Juntos Common Measures, and setting the course for Juntos with Purpose, Accountability, and Communication (PAC). Check out the videos below to learn more about Juntos.
