Annual College Fair
The Hispanic Alliance College Fair, organized and executed by the Education Team, is a unique event to Greenville, gathering over 12 institutions of higher education, numerous community resource representatives, and multiple workshop, all targeted at the needs of Hispanic students and their families. The event is equipped with interpreters to eliminate language barriers, special presentations for students with DACA status, and bilingual workshops addressing the most common barriers to college for Hispanic students.
Lunch & Learns
A Lunch and Learn session is a condensed method of providing a wealth of resources for academic success and higher education to Hispanic high school students. They are attended by a diverse group of volunteers from the Education Team, eager to share personal stories of perseverance and success in their education journeys. Hundreds of times over, our team members have given students, a word of hope, a path forward, and a hand to hold as they pursue their dreams.
How can a group of busy professionals reach nearly 400 Hispanic students from 8 different high schools in one year? It can only be done as a team effort. Boasting approximately 150 members on record, one of the team's strengths is finding creative ways for anyone with a willing heart to be involved!
