Young Humanitaria Award- SLCC Student

Westside teen takes road less traveled: Service & becomes Utah’s Young Humanitarian

“If it hadn’t been for the Mestizo Arts and Activism Collective (MAA), I would have either been in prison or dead,” says Israel Santana, Salt Lake Community College student and recipient of the 2015 Youthlinc Utah Young Humanitarian Award.

As a high school senior, Santana became involved with MAA where he used poetry, photography, and other mediums to share his experience growing up on the west side of Salt Lake, where many teens are at risk of drug and gang involvement.

Instead of taking those roads, Santana now mentors younger students. He writes, “My leadership in Salt Lake City has focused on empowering young people of color to pursue a higher education, become politically aware, and maintain a sense of pride in their cultures, all while pursuing positive social change.”
