In the fall of 2018, Conexión Américas and Overton High School began a one-of-a kind partnership to serve recently arrived Latino immigrant students.

The Youth Development Specialist is a full-time Conexión Américas staff member who is on-site at Overton High School providing specialized support to students. The YDS works closely with school administrators and staff to support efforts related to students’ sense of belonging, academic progress, socio-emotional wellbeing, and attendance.

If you are interested in a partnership to bring this position to your school, please contact Maria Paula Zapata for more information.
