was because this summer, youth attended the Educational Training Academy. The goal was to teach youth on weekly topics about the education system. Summer intern, Eva Morelos, had gathered a
handful of students each week and prepared them to teach the information to
other youth in our community.
The weekly workshops were held a KidWorks from 3-5pm, beginning on
July 10 until August 17. Attendees discussed the educational issues surrounding
our youth. In the two hour workshop, the sessions varied from AB 540 topics,
scholarship Q&As, and FAFSA process to A-G requirements. Without a doubt,
youth benefited as they were informed with the latest updates of the educational
system, including Deferred Action support. Miss Morelos made sure that our youth
were fully informed as well as entertained. You can be certain that this school
year will be an outstanding one!
