About Us

SOMOS, Inc. is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization committed to addressing the needs of the Hispanic population of New York state. Our conferences, held twice yearly, serve as a platform for legislators, scholars, and business and labor leaders to address various concerns pertinent to this community.

Additionally, SOMOS, Inc. uses the funds collected through these conferences to empower youths with scholarships that encourage furthering their education; college internships to promote retention; and apprenticeships to introduce newly graduated adults into the public, non-profit, labor, and private sectors. The organization aims to create opportunities for Hispanic youth that will facilitate their professional development, growth, and future success.
