The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) will be hosting three Body, Mind, Spirit Seminars hosted by the U.S. Marine Corps in New Orleans, Oakland, and Detroit!

The Seminars will be taking place on April 24th at Tulane University in New Orleans, April 26th at Mills College in Oakland, and May 2nd at Wayne State University in Detroit.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Marine Corps to provide our youth with guidelines, resources, and role models that will help provide a healthier and more productive path as they go forward in their education and careers,” said Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation.

These seminars allow students to explore the possibilities of finding a healthy lifestyle when dealing with the pressures of school, life, and their futures after graduating high school. During the seminars there are interactive presentations, workshops on leadership conducted by the Marine Corps, and panelists talk to the students about their own personal journeys.

Body, Mind, Spirit Seminars are unique because students in high school, teachers and parents learn more about all of the resources there are available on health and wellness to become well rounded Latino leaders in their schools and communities.

Students are going to hear personal stories from a panel of wellness professionals, where they will be able to learn more about the Body, Mind, and Spirit, ask the panelists questions, and network with other students and professionals!

HHF’s other programs including Code as a Second Language, Youth Awards, Latinos on Fast Track (LOFT), and LOFT STEM Symposia are guiding students to Latino leadership in different cities, across the country.
