UNCG CHANCE provides Latinx rising high school juniors and seniors with the opportunity to engage in an intensive three-day college preparation and leadership skills development experience. Area high school students, as well as students from surrounding counties within the state, are encouraged to attend a creative mix of days in the life of typical college students. These experiences include:

  • Attending mock class (across several disciplines)
  • Mock course registration
  • Leadership development
  • Team building activities
  • Campus organizations
  • Cultural experiences
  • Sports activities
  • Civic responsibility

Participants engage with university professors, students, and staff to develop a peer/professional network forging positive, healthy mentorship connections focused on academic success and personal growth. This program encourages Latinx students to attend college by increasing their awareness of higher education and showing that it is well within their reach. Contact Caleb Cuthbertson at clcuthbe@uncg.edu if interested in either assisting with the program or attending it.
