Overview

Brief Program Summary: This exploratory study collected the stories of a group of high school students, parents, and educators to illustrate the challenges, opportunities, aspirations, expectations, and gaps in services among Latinx high school students transitioning to college in Central Indiana. Data was collected through four focus groups with Latinx parents and high school students, and interviews with teachers serving Latinx high school-aged students. Participants of the study were recruited from three Indianapolis Public Schools with high proportions of Latinx students: George Washington HS, Arsenal Tech HS, and the Newcomers program in Northwest High School. The findings of the study will be used to inform policy about services to support the success of Latinx in the city of Indianapolis, Indiana.
Success Metrics: The study will identify gaps in services, knowledge, and access to programs or resources that aid Latinx Indianapolis youth to achieve post-secondary options.
