Scholars Latino Initiative

SLI helps Latino children from Chapel Hill to Siler City improve their lives by providing mentoring, counseling, college preparation, and even financial assistance to those continuing their education. Many volunteers including mentors from UNC. Funded by UNC and private foundations. SLI works to improve the quality of life for Latinos by working with Latino high school students and pairing them with mentors from UNC. SLI is a student-led program comprised of UNC students committing 3-years of mentoring and guide them through the process of selecting classes so that they can go on to higher education, advising them what to do with their time to have a better profile for universities, and providing a college-prep program through professors and students at Carolina by increasing writing and thinking skills. Overall, the goal is to achieve admissions to Universities for the Latino students. SLI also assists with funding education after high schools.
