President of the Latino and Latin Roundtable
I am excited to announce that the Mt. San Antonio College El Centro and Bridge Programs are hosting an event called, “Power to the CommUnity: A Community-to-College Pathway”. Our intention is to work with community based organizations in order to create a virtual space in the community for youth to be able to learn about the Summer Bridge Program and other services and career pathways offered at Mt. SAC. We want to increase the accessibility of this information and create a pathway towards higher education in our communities. We are hoping that you all would be willing to partner with us on this particular event.
The event will be taking place on Wednesday, May 19th, 2021 from 4pm to 6pm via zoom.
During the event, our team will briefly cover the steps to apply, where to learn more about our vocational programs, where to search for academic majors, and where to learn more about our sports programs. We will then go into detail about the Summer Bridge Program. Furthermore, we will talk about our student support equity programs and give tips on how to stay connected.
Please let me know if you or your organization would be interested in partnering. All you would have to do is spread the word about this event with any of the youth you work with. We would also love to add your logos to the flyer.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to reach out to us at any time.
