Primos are Latino professionals ready to serve the community.
Primos are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and skills with young Latinos.
Primos are a resource to families, churches, schools, and the greater community.
Primos are an extension
Our mission is to guide and motivate young people to become college, career, and life ready by providing them with the tools to develop self-efficacy, a growth mindset, and a commitment to service.
Our vision is to create a community of young Latinos ready to impact the world.
Most Primos grew up in the Dallas area and many were the “firsts” in their family: first to go to school in the U.S., first to go to college, first to grow up speaking English, etc.
Primos know the challenges that come with school and figuring out life to ensure success. They want to have your back and be your (slightly) older, cool, wise cousin that you hang out with and go to for advice.
Primos At A Glance
What do you do in a mentorship program?
This will be done by meeting in person and keeping in touch virtually.
How time consuming is this?
There is a lot of flexibility in setting up meetings so don’t worry if you have extra curricular activities or a job. We will make the time!
In between the monthly meeting, you guys will stay in touch via text, email, phone, etc.
We will also have a few group outings and fun events that you can participate in along with other members of Primos.
This sounds like it would be awkward....
How many months is the program?
How are parents involved?
Mentors will keep in touch with parents about outings so that they know the details of when/where you will be going.
Do I get to choose my Primo mentor?
