Teen girls are invited to discover the importance of college and get an insider’s view of college life at our Latinas in Progress College Prep Workshop. The event will feature college prep activities and games, a college student panel and keynote speakers presenting on the value of academic pursuit. Girls will have an opportunity to meet college student mentors, attend workshops on the importance of education and participate in activities to start preparing for college. The program exposes participants to a wide range of choices regarding college opportunities while connecting students’ own interests to real-world college majors and careers. Going beyond the application process itself, mentors help participants know what to expect and how to adjust to university life.

Some of the activities and workshops that will be provided include:

SAT/ACT Preparation
College Life Personal Insight Questions
Academic Mentors
College and Career Panels
Financial Aid & Scholarship Workshop
College Application Guidance

How to choose the right college campus for you

The event is hosted by Latinas in Progress, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering young Latinas to pursue higher education.
