Kentucky Latino Education Alliance

Mission Statement and Purpose

The Kentucky Latino Education Alliance (K LEA) is a cross sector, cross agency partnership dedicated to increase the number of Latinos who obtain a high quality degree or credential in Kentucky. K LEA has set out to foster Latino postsecondary degree attainment as to uplift the Latino community which will in turn enrich the overall Kentucky economy insuring a bright future for the Commonwealth.

K LEA has determined its partners can have their greatest impact by addressing the need for better college preparation and increased student retention. Therefore, partners must improve policy and develop data-driven strategies for increased college preparation and retention rates.
