The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute has unveiled a new online tool to help Latino students in middle through graduate school connect with internships, fellowships, scholarships and more. NextOpp officially launched Wednesday. 

“The one-stop shop offered by NextOpp helps level the playing field for Latino students who may have otherwise not been exposed to these amazing and life-changing resources,” CHCI President and CEO Esther Aguilera said in a news release. “With this exciting new website, CHCI will help thousands of Latinos achieve their educational and career dreams, and successfully guide them on the path to success.”

CHCI, a nonprofit organization which touts a 40-year reputation of educating, empowering and connecting young leaders, is promoting NextOpp as a safe, user-friendly search tool to connect students with “life changing opportunities.”

The program features both basic and advanced search options and includes additional information for college-bound users.
