About Us

The Latino Institute, Inc. is an educational entity dedicated to a mission to serve as a bridge between the Latino community, and the educational, cultural, governmental, social and economic institutions of society by providing accurate, factual, and timely information on the barriers and challenges affecting that community.

Our particular interest is educational achievement for Latinos throughout the educational continuum and the promotion of Latino culture in America. We believe, as many reasonable people believe, that educational achievement is the key to success in life. At the same time, we believe in respecting, fostering and promoting the Latino cultural heritage, especially among our young ones, while directly working with parents and educators for the development of Latinos everywhere in the educational pathway.

We promote these tenets through major events, conference, seminars, lectures, workshops, performances, programs, and other activities.

The Latino Institute, Inc. offers services on a statewide basis in the State of New Jersey, and has a national presence via special events. Check our Events sections to see our past conferences
