searching for meaning
By paying close attention to human needs, values, and behaviors, Sentido seeks to learn how we can support Latino young adults as they seek meaning in their lives.
We want to create space for innovation that serves a new generation of Latino adults of diverse backgrounds, helping them to find fulfillment in areas like relationships, personal growth and service to others.
Sentido is not a program or a project. It is a process. We are using the principles of human-centered design, which include listening, observing and empathy, as we try to learn how Latino young adults find meaning.
Sentido evolved out of a grassroots effort to discern a perceived disconnect between Latino young adults and traditional institutional leadership.
