During July 4-8, 90 rising 8-12 graders attended the Juntos Summer Summit. Participants came from six counties: Alamance, Orange, Sampson, Wake, Wayne Counties. All counties have implemented the six-week Juntos curriculum.  During the summer summit, students spent time in workshops and other educational activities. They learned about two of NC State’s largest colleges – the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering – and they went on a walking tour of campus.  They also heard from a panel of N.C. State Latino students; attended workshops on such diverse topics as self-identity, paying for college and how medicines are made; took part in a Zumba session and a soccer clinic with members of the Carolina Railhawks; and visited the Contemporary Art Museum and N.C.
