In 2017, only 77 percent of Utah Latinos graduated high school. The percentage of those going to college is even lower.

A Latino youth leadership boot camp is taking place for the first time at Utah State University. The university is joining Latinos-in-Action, a national organization working to encourage Latino youth to consider pursuing higher education.
