Series of workshops to increase college knowledge in Latino middle school and high school parents

Although many Latino parents plan for their children to attend college, they may not always know how and when to start preparing. This project was designed for Latino parents with little to no academic experiences who are consequently unable to guide and support their children through the college process. The purpose of this project was to develop a series of workshops that will be given to Latino, middle school and/or high school parents throughout an 8-week period. Parents will be educated on topics such as A-G requirements, AP and honors classes, SAT/ACT exams, GPA, and other college related areas. In addition to the workshops, a parent newsletter is also included to be sent home on a biweekly basis. The newsletter will summarize the content of the workshops in English and Spanish for those who were unable to attend.
