Latin@ Educators in New York Independent Schools



LENYIS Mission

LENYIS is a coalition of educators and school employees whose purpose and goals are: 

• To identify common concerns related to the pan-ethnic Latin@ community,
• To share solutions that enable us to deal more effectively with the diversity and equity issues we encounter in our respective educational institutions.
• To develop a strong voice in acknowledging and supporting Latin@ families in our respective institutions and, whenever possible, on a larger scale.
• To share resources which contribute to the enrichment of our curricula and the enhancement of our personal heritage.


[There] is a long road until true equity for students of all backgrounds is a taken-for-granted reality.
