The purpose of this workshop is to inform, expose, and empower Latino youth to learn more about the high school requirements so that they can apply to college. The workshop will focus on New York college preparation requirements, college admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.
As you may know, Latinos are greatly underrepresented in higher education. Therefore, it is important that Latino youth are exposed to other Latinos who are going to college. At the workshop, youth will have an opportunity to interact and ask questions of other Latino undergraduate and graduate students about their experience in navigating the K-16 educational pipeline.
Please feel free to forward the invite to students, parents, and other
community members who may benefit from this event. If you would like more information or to RSVP, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
