History and Values
Committed to Making a Difference
Futuro Latino Coalition has been present since 2009—providing exceptional enrichment and leadership development opportunities to Latino youth. Our coalition began with a partnership between Strong Families Great Youth Coalition and Promotores de Salud—a program of the Blue Ridge Area Health Education Center at James Madison University.
Our vision is to create a community where Latino youth have a positive, safe and active environment to live, work, and play.
The mission of Futuro Latino is to reduce and prevent alcohol and substance use by Latino youth in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County through community action, education, the reduction of barriers, and continuous support and ongoing collaboration to influence positive and lasting change.
