Sociedad Latina

Emmanuel College serves as part of Sociedad Latina’s College Access Network, providing the Mission Hill-based organization with support for their many programs.

Sociedad Latina is a Mission Hill-based organization that cultivates leaders among Latino youth. Each year, The Jean Yawkey Center for Community Leadership provides two yearlong, selective, paid internships at Sociedad Latina to work with youth on education reform, advocacy and community organizing.

Emmanuel College sponsors Sociedad Latina's annual Three Kings Day Celebration, which commemorates the Biblical story of the three kings who followed the star of Bethlehem to bring gifts to the Christ child. The College also supports the Mission Possible! College Access Program, which makes higher education a reality for some of Boston's most at-risk youth, through a blend of academic and college access support, workforce development opportunities, case management and parent engagement activities. The program annually serves 85 Mission Hill youth between the ages of 14-21.
