Latinos in Action

Creating Leaders and Trailblazers from Elementary School through College

Latinos in Action provides Utah’s minority youth with opportunities to prepare for college, develop leadership skills through service and navigate a “system” that far too often leaves them behind. Dr. Jose Enriquez, the organization’s founder and CEO, is passionate about helping the students in his program not only personally succeed, but also mentor others.

Jennifer Steele Christensen produces Utah Cares for Utah Public Radio. A longtime journalist-turned-social-worker, she has written for newspapers and magazines throughout Utah, Las Vegas and Arizona, her work earning seven Utah Press Association awards. Jennifer has a master’s degree in social work from Utah State University and loves helping Utah’s nonprofit voices share their stories. She is the busy mother of five children.
