College Bound Latinos
I have frequently talked with my friend, Angelica Perez, the publisher of New Latina, about education. We are both absurdly passionate about the subject. She is a creative genius, and I was very excited when she came up with the idea to start a group specifically for Latino families with children approaching high school graduation and who wanted to find the resources and opportunities available for college. She began by creating an open group on Facebook, an "E-Mentoring Group," and we've shared some fantastic resources there. But in order to make it more accessible to Latino parents and students, she's moved it a step further and opened a fan page, College Bound Latinos.
I would encourage you to check out the page, especially if you have older children entering high school. And if you have family or friends with kids preparing for college, please share this resource with them, as well. Let's get our kids excited about higher education and into the Universities.
Con mucho cariño...
