us with our mission?
The Mission of LULAC 3272 is to establish collaborative partnerships that progress the economic condition, educational achievement, health, and civic engagement of communities in Kern County.
LULAC 3272 believes in the power of education. Education has the ability to transform lives by creating opportunities for those with limited means – exemplifying the American Dream Research shows that families headed by someone with less advantageous inherited demographic characteristics, completion of a four-year degree typically boosts income and wealth far above the levels they would have achieved without a degree (The Demographics of Wealth, 2018).
Approximately 22% of Kern County residents are living in poverty according to the U.S. Census Bureau (2017). Economic advancement through degrees, certifications and/or training reduces the impact of economic burden on households. We are committed to economic progress by providing scholarship funds, hosting networking opportunities and mentoring youth.
LULAC 3272 is committed to non-partisan civic engagement including voter participation drives and involvement in issues that impact our community. Civic education and participation supports the well-being of all our communities.
Volunteer Reading Opportunities
LULAC 3272 continues to partner with community preschools and organizations for opportunities to encourage children of all ages to read. Reading at an early age helps children academically and is especially needed for students from low socio-economic backgrounds. Our goals include volunteering, fundraising, and providing supplies to support educational development.
LULAC 3272 continues to provide scholarships to Kern County students needing financial support to achieve their education and career goals. With the continuing support of business partners, sponsors through our fundraising events LULAC 3272 continues to provide 10-15 scholarships annually supporting higher education in our community.
