Alumni are doing incredible things. Rachel Burns biked 9,000 miles summer 2015 from Key West, Florida to Dead Horse, Alaska. Check it out: www.KeysToFreeze.com

Latino Migration Project alumni are blazing trails in their chosen career paths…
& they’ve got our attention.

That’s why we’ve renamed this “Alumni Portal” to reflect what our ACCOMPLISHED, DIVERSE, and MOTIVATED students really are:

PROFESSIONALS.

Through LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING, and ENGAGED SERVICE, LMP Professionals have had an incredible impact through our programs, and continue to make their mark in their careers.

Network with your PROFESSIONAL peers, find your dream job, share your experiences, and consider giving back to the next generation of leaders.

Since 2007, 70% of graduated alumni have gone on to pursue careers in fields that directly work with immigrants. These students are very competitive in a state and region with great need for a bilingual workforce with these skills: in fact 97% of our alumni find jobs or enter graduate school within one year of graduating.
