LEAD @ De Anza

Established in 2005, Latina/o Empowerment at De Anza (LEAD) is a multidisciplinary program that prepares students to become effective advocates and leaders on issues of importance to the Latino community.  Faculty members engage with more than 1,000 students in 27 classes to promote advocacy and social change through peer learning and civic engagement.  LEAD students complete 12 hours of civic engagement such as conducting leadership development workshops for the children of farmworkers, tutoring the children of day laborers, or advocating in Sacramento for policy changes that benefit undocumented students. Classrooms structured around the concept of familias, small peer learning groups guided by trained Peer Mentors, promote collaborative learning and relationship building.
