Mission:  To increase college participation through access and outreach partnerships that encourage underrepresented students to pursue and successfully complete a post-secondary education.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The Smithsonian Latino Center is accepting applications for its Young Ambassadors Program. This program provides students with a week long, all-expenses paid training and leadership seminar and a four-week internship. It is open to graduating high school seniors with a commitment to the arts, sciences, or humanities as it pertains to the Latino communities. The deadline is April 6, 2015.


 
Education Access & Outreach, in cooperation with Latino's in Action, will be hosting the Latino's in Action Conference on March 12, 2015.  This is another opportunity for you lend your time and talent toward a great outreach event.  Approximately, 1,600 students will be on campus for this event, so our volunteer needs are tremendous! Some of the conference volunteer opportunities include:
 
* having an information table
* volunteering in general with registration, directing traffic, or facilitating a session
* pre-event bag stuffing and placing of signage

Tabling is free to all WSU programs!
