Empowering Our Community: College & Immigration Information
On January 27, 2018, Hispanic Federation hosted a college workshop for Long Island City High School families. Presented exclusively in Spanish, this workshop equipped families with knowledge about navigating the process towards achieving collegiate goals. Participants received ample information regarding the college process and how to support their child. They received useful resources related to college applications, cost of attendance, and thinking about postsecondary institutions during the early part of high school.
Emerald Isle Immigration Center and NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs were also present to provide information to families about knowing their rights. Families received additional information about IDNYC and actionable steps that could be taken should the need arise. We are grateful for these vital community resources who were able to assist with questions, concerns, and provide continued support for our families in the Long Island City High School and Zone 126 community.
