Join UnidosNow tomorrow, Tuesday, September 20th, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month & #GivingChallenge16 at Mi Pueblo El Restaurante Mexicano & Cantina! Mi Pueblo will donate 10% of the proceeds of your meal to support UnidosNow Education programming. Simply print the card above and take it with you when you visit any of the three locations of Mi Pueblo tomorrow!

The UnidosNow team will be at the Tuttle location (8405 Tuttle Ave, Sarasota, FL 34243) at 6 pm, if you want to join the group festivities, but you can help support UnidosNow by having lunch or dinner at any of their locations tomorrow.

Supporting UnidosNow means supporting first generation and low-income college students. When we started the #FutureLeadersAcademy, we knew there was a big need to guide our students and families through the #college process. Listening to their testimonials about their experience in the academy makes us realize the enormous #impact we are having in their lives. You can #BeTheOne to #InspireAStudent. Donate to UnidosNow during the#GivingChallenge16 next Sept. 20-21, noon to noon, and help our students #DREAMBig. #GivingChallenge16Video

You Can Be The One to Students Like Tea

Congratulations to Tea Binder who was recently named a National Merit Scholar semi-finalist, which places her in the top 1% of all students in the country taking the 2015 PSAT.

Tea has participated in our Future Leaders Academy for the past two years and aspires to attend a top national university and eventually become a surgeon.

As a semi-finalist, Tea qualifies to compete for National Merit Scholarships to be awarded next spring. Good luck, Tea, we are all cheering for you!

UnidosNow is Engaging New Partners for the #GivingChallenge16

We are thrilled to have new partners participating in our Challenge campaign this year! Thanks to our young professional volunteer committee, we are competing in the Millennial Challenge.

Our dynamic Millennial team – Juan Arcila, with USF Sarasota-Manatee, and local attorneys Kelly Rodenas and Carolina Saavedra – are developing creative and techy ways to engage young people and encourage them to be part of this philanthropic opportunity. Here is the video they created to launch UnidosNow’s Millennial Challenge:

 


Stay tuned for details on the upcoming Millennial Challenge happy hour community event!

UnidosNow is also partnering with The Ringling to compete in the Giving Challenge’s Best Nonprofit Partnership contest. Both institutions value education and prioritize education programming and services as a primary part of their respective missions.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we are collaborating to elevate the visibility of the contributions of Latinos and Latino Americans to the arts and culture of the U.S. The Ringling will host two events focused on their exhibit, Collaborating Across Borders, which features Latin American artists, to which UnidosNow will bring our familia – students, parents, mentors and supporters – to celebrate.

Be The One To Inspire a Student

Our talented scholars of the Future Leaders Academy inspire us to continue working from them -and for the generations to come- and guide them to dream big and reach high.

Our tremendous mentors inspire our students to find their passion, and to believe in themselves to accomplish their goals.

Our committed parents inspire all of us in the pursue of their American Dream.

During the Future Leaders Summer Academy, our students were asked to create a personal statement, a presentation of who they are, and what they want to achieve. METV joined UnidosNow during the closing ceremonies of our Rising Juniors and Rising Seniors classes, giving us the possibility of sharing with all of you their powerful stories and outstanding talents. With them, we wish to also inspire you.

But now it’s your turn to inspire a student. We are counting on you –our friends and supporters– to help expand and enhance our programs through the 24-hour online giving event, from noon to noon on September 20 and 21, the Giving Challenge 2016. Learn how simple will be to donate here.

It only takes one to inspire a student. Be The One.
