The GANAS Summer Symposium for Latino Student College Success held in June was a huge success. During this multi-day event, Latino and Latina youth participated in several higher education and cultural activities both on the COCC Bend Campus and outdoors at Smith Rock State Park. The program offered a dynamic curriculum that integrated 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 

Here is a video slideshow of students attending the GANAS Symposium.
