“During a time when I felt a lot of doors were closing, SOMOS provided a window of opportunity”.
“I could not have gotten where I am today without the support of the Somos mentors. They have given me the confidence to pursue my goals as an immigration attorney at a time when the job outlook for attorneys has been dismal. I love my job and am eternally grateful to the Somos Foundation”.
The goal of the Somos Foundation is to create strong leaders in Utah to help our state prosper economically, and Somos knows that there is more to creating leaders than just offering scholarships for Latino/a students. Through the somos academy, latino students can get connected with and mentored by community leaders.
The Somos Academy is a series of seminars and workshops conducted by board members, donors and sponsors held for the benefit of Somo’s scholarship recipients where students grow in their personal development and adhere knowledge from mentoring and networking.
