Centro SOL’s Youth Program Creates Opportunities for Students
Latino teens explore health care careers and get involved in community outreach
Before joining the youth program at Centro SOL (Center for Salud/Health and Opportunities for Latinos) at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Leo Sanchez says, he did not enjoy working with others because he didn’t feel he could rely on them. After spending a summer with 80 fellow Latino high school students, Sanchez says he has become comfortable working in a group.
“In Centro SOL, I learned to be more open minded, and they taught me about teamwork,” says Sanchez, a junior at Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School. “Now I enjoy working with people and learning from my teammates.”
