WHO WE ARE…
The Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SEDHCC) Youth Committee is a group of local students working to develop leadership capacity for southeast Dallas. The Youth Committee members are pursuing a higher education and exploring career pathways for a 21st century economy.
Our purpose is to engage students in the SEDHCC Volunteer Corps, participating in business and academic workshops and planning arts and cultural events for the neighborhood. The SEDHCC Youth Committee understands the Pleasant Grove neighborhood and is dedicated to promoting resources available for student success.
Did You Know…
Only 29% of Pleasant Grove Residents have a High School Diploma or Equivalent Certification (US Census, 2018).
Young Latino students prepared with leadership skills and community resources are more likely to achieve career success and serve as good role models for their communities (PEW, 2020).
Since 2008, the SEDHCC has funded $400,000.00 in scholarships for Pleasant Grove students to attend Dallas College (SEDHCC, 2020).
WHAT WE DO…
We empower young Latino adults to pursue Higher Education and achieve student success through community engagement and professional networking opportunities with our Chamber members, corporate sponsors, and local business entrepreneurs.
