Description

Our purpose is to work from the very core of the Latino community. We will go into our local high schools: Central High School and Salem-­‐Keizer School District. Sometimes, for students who are first generation and have no prior knowledge of what it takes to go to college, the process can be intimidating and discouraging. We will place all the helpful tools we’ve received from meetings, mentors, clubs, etc. in one insightful presentation which we can follow up with one to one mentoring. We want to be that source of insight that we wished we could’ve had back when we were younger; it only takes one person to propel a student into higher education.
