I highly recommend subscribing to researcher Dr. Ed Rincón's blog, The Culture of Research, who also authored this post (see below). Here is the title and description:
Not just in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but every place around the country where Latinos are concentrated need to be thinking about cultivating the next generation of leaders. In this vein, Dr. Rincón suggests a kind of literacy that doesn't often come to mind with respect to the general population, including being able through language, culture, and a sense of and knowledge of roots and heritage as key to their development.
What I see is that a lot of this kind of leadership has come directly out of the millennial student DREAM Act movement. The lead organization at UT is the University Leadership Initiative (ULI). As a whole, ULI youth either already possess or quickly acquire the multicultural and linguistic literacies to organize constituencies, knowledge of civil rights and civil rights initiatives and history, directly address policy and politics, and navigate social media, as expressed on their website:
University Leadership Initiative (ULI) harnesses the talents, abilities and determination of youth -particularly college students- to affect long-term change in a proactive manner. Specially, ULI conducts outreach at the local, state, and national level to address the dilemma faced by young people who were brought to the United States years ago as undocumented immigrant children, but who have since grown up in the United States, have stayed out of trouble, and wish to continue their education on to college.
