Siembra Salud

The purpose of Siembra Salud is to expose more Latinos to different health careers that aren’t necessarily spoken about. Also it helps address and fix some of the health disparities that are within our Latino community.

Siembra Raíces

I’ve always been really interested in environmentalism, that’s why I applied to the Siembra Raíces program. It has definitely helped me a lot because it has given me hands-on experience that I wouldn’t have had without this internship.

Mia Perales

Siembra Medios

Media is weird, it’s very hard to make a living doing it. You have to learn how to use things like Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, Canva and AfterEffects. These are the skills I have learned in Siembra Medios and I am so grateful for this opportunity to gain the skills needed to stand out from the crowd.
