Kentucky Latino Education Alliance (K'LEA)

The Kentucky Latino Education Alliance (K’LEA) is a cross-sector, cross-agency partnership dedicated to increasing the number of Latinos who obtain a high quality degree or credential in Kentucky. K’LEA has set out to foster Latino postsecondary degree attainment in an effort to uplift the Latino community which will, in turn, enrich the overall Kentucky economy and insure a bright future for the Commonwealth.

K’LEA has determined its partners can have their greatest impact by addressing the need for better college preparation and increased student retention. Therefore, partners must improve policy and develop data-driven strategies for increased college preparation and retention rates.
