JTOH Core Events 2016-2017

The Resources Tab on the left sidebar has the documents you will need throughout the JTOH school year


JTOH is one of the nation’s most innovative and unique multi-cultural educational programs. Sponsored by Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) Department of Chicano/Chicana Studies and Department of Africana Studies, our program partners college peer mentors with local high school students. Our goal is to engage students in a yearlong program that enhances the public school systems curriculum in the areas of African American, Native American Chicano/a, Mexicana/o, Mexican American and Latina/o Studies.

The grand finale of the yearlong endeavor is an academic “knowledge bowl” between participating high school teams. Our Program also encourages all teams to participate in service learning projects throughout the community. Students have the opportunity to be part of the MSU Denver Mauricio Saravia Literary Journal and to connect with leading cultural arts and science institutions such as the such as the History Colorado Center, Denver Art Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens and numerous nonprofits throughout Colorado.

Let the Jornada Begin!
