Event Description:

Language difficulties, precarious family finances, low parental expectations, legal restrictions, lack of guidance from high school counselors . . . all can be obstacles to the children of immigrants trying to secure the education they desire, require, and deserve. Underlying these challenges is a sense that they are unwelcome hereā€”at best grudgingly tolerated, at worst unwanted altogether. Join Latino high school and college students to hear about their goals, challenges, and special assets. Watch a video exploring the dreams and realities facing several students in Indianapolis, learn about the organizations and programs that are trying to help them, and discover what these young people have to share with us. Presented by El Puente Project; FIRME; Indianapolis Museum of Art; IU School of Education, IUPUI; National Society of Hispanic MBAs - Indianapolis Chapter; and Provocate.
