Serving the predominately Hispanic area of the Near Southside, the Quantum program at the United Community Center works with a mix of Puerto Rican and Mexican American high school students from several high schools. While these students are from different high schools, they all come from the same neighborhood, most having attended the same middle school.
True to the original Quantum model, Milwaukee is going to focus on education and preparation for college, including working toward receipt of scholarships. Even skill development activities will have an academic component.
