HISPA collaborates with Latino and other minority professionals, enabling them to be active role models to students across New Jersey on a recurring basis; allowing the role models to showcase their educational experiences, careers and ethnic backgrounds to improve students’ academic performance and achievement. The drop-out rates of our Hispanic students and students in general in the US are staggering, and our organization knows that it is within our power to make a difference.
We will be honored if you accept our invitation, to join the event, as students will be participating in different workshops and activities that will encourage them to continue their path to higher education.
