The objective of OMLI is to develop leadership skills in Oregon's high school migrant students as well as to expose and familiarize them with the college environment to strengthen the belief that college is a reality for them. This is an opportunity for migrant students to interact with other students, faculty, and staff to enhance and perhaps open new horizons to the student’s future. Through this experience, students will return to their schools prepared to participate in leadership activities.
