The GANAS Edúcate Summer Symposium introduces Latinx high school students to the college experience through structured academic, leadership and cultural activities. The goal is to expose students to different elements of the college experience that will better prepare them for the transition from high school into college. The program offers a dynamic curriculum that integrates leadership, college preparation, and culturally relevant themes for the Latino/a students. Learning outcomes include:

  • College Preparation
  • Academic Skills Development
  • Critical Thinking
  • Cultural Pride
  • Leadership Skills
