In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month in October and in partnership with Hostos Community College/CUNY, the Latino College Expo will be hosting an event to increase family involvement & support with their child in the college process.

The importance of “family” in the college admissions process is sometimes not given the importance it deserves, especially among Latino families. This day will better educate both parents and students, so together they can support each other and make a better-informed and better-supported decision.

There will be various workshop/seminars offered and various presenters who are experts in the field of family engagement and support, financial planning, college access … Students will be offered workshop/seminars in areas around scholarship search, leadership, branding yourself, telling your story …

“Together” is the goal in strengthening understanding and solidification of support towards one goal “college acceptance & affording college”.
