Today, the MIL Mariposas Monarca group, in collaboration with Rocio Diaz, Goshen College multicultural outreach and community liaison, will host the event, “Extendiendo Las Alas Al Exito.”This is event is taking place in order to target the Latino families in the Goshen community and to promote their exploration of college as an option for their children in the future.
“This event is to inform Latino families about the college-going process, the importance of education in order to be able to succeed in this country, financial aid and scholarships,” said Diaz.
Members of the Latino community at Goshen College are invited to attend.
Diaz hopes that the program will motivate the families of Latino students to be involved in the education of their children.
“I hope to create awareness among Latino families about the opportunities available to obtain a college degree,” said Diaz. “As Latino parents are starting to realize that the best way to help their children have a better future is to help them receive an upper level education, they need to learn how to support and guide them through their school years.”
“Extendiendo Las Alas Al Exito” will take place at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, located on 1108 South Main St, Elkhart.
The program will be held in Spanish and will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
