CESDP | YOUTH PROGRAMS
We prepare the children of Northern New Mexico to succeed.

The Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations (CESDP)
has three major programs for students: the GEAR UP/ ENLACE Collaborative,
Northern New Mexico and Statewide ENLACE, and the EBS Youth Entrepreneurship Project.
All three programs are directed by Mr. Ron Martinez and are coordinated by staff at Santa Fe Community
College, Northern New Mexico College in Española, and CESDP. The comprehensive goals of CESDP's youth
programming are to increase student retention and success, enhance students' career awareness and college readiness, create a cohort of student leaders, provide relevant and targeted professional development for educators, and provide support for parents as essential partners in education.
