Upward Bound works with low income and at risk youths to help them become the first in their family to attend college. Many of these students have friends and family members that have been or are currently in prison. The students absolutely loved the speakers and were engaged in the presentations.
Thank you to the speakers for sharing their personal narratives to the students and educating and encouraging them to exercise their rights as young citizens.
The second group of HCCLA members will be presenting on November 22. If you’re interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
