Free Bilingual Webinar for College-Bound Latinos



I'm so happy to announce that on Friday, June 29th, the first in a series of free bilingual webinars - titled "Latinos Rumbo al College" - for Latino families with college-bound students will take place.

MacDonald's®, Latinos in College, and LULAC National Educational Service Centers have banded together to bring this valuable series to Latino families across the nation. Education expert, Mariela Dabbah, will be presenting information on how students can prepare themselves for college and what resources are available.

Of course, the best part is that this series is free - all you have to do is register once, and you'll be able to login to all of the webinars in the series.

Friday, June 29th is the first webinar. But the Latinos Rumbo al College series will continue in the fall with the following bilingual webinars:

-   "Acing Scholarship Applications" - Wednesday, September 5th
-   "Finding Mentors and Building a Support System" - Wednesday, October 3rd
-   "Mastering the College Application Process" - Wednesday, November 7th


I will be attending the webinar (in person) and sharing some of the information Ms. Dabbah shares, but I would encourage you to watch the webinar on your home computer so that you don't miss anything.

Hope to see you there!

Un abrazo...

  1. What language will the webinars be presented in? Is this geared toward high school students? Junior high? Thanks!

    1. Kimberly, they are in both English and Spanish and are geared for high school students, though junior high students could certainly benefit and learn about what to be thinking about when they begin high school.
