The annual Hispanic Achievers Program, a joint partnership between the YMCA of Greater New York and Colgate-Palmolive, is an important fundraising initiative, recognizing excellence in corporate and civic leadership of Latinx leaders.
The funds raised help Hispanic youth achieve educational goals and attend college; they help working families to maintain jobs through reliable childcare; and they provide essential community support networks that so many families need today. And they provide two college scholarships for two outstanding young Latinx Scholars, participating in the life-changing college access program known as Rowe Scholars, serving predominantly Latinx and black youth, who are often the first in their families to attend college.
