Joliet Central's Guidance Office is recruiting students for the Si Se Puede Conference at Lewis University taking place on October 10 from 8:30am to 1:30pm.The conference will have 4 sessions (admission, financial aid, a day in the life of a college student, and tour) and a keynote speaker.
The Si Se Puede Conference, named after a well-known phrase often utilized by the late Chicano civil rights leader Cesar E. Chavez meaning ‘Yes You Can,’ offers a unique opportunity for Latino youth to experience a hands-on conference at a local university to gain knowledge on the importance of higher education and how to make it a reality while connecting with Latino college students and college professionals.The guest speaker, David Gloria of Gallup Diversity and Inclusion and Founder of NextGen Latinx, will share his story as a son of immigrants and the first in his family to attend and graduate from college.
Students must turn in the field trip form as well as register on the google form in order to be able to attend. Field trip forms are located in the guidance office. The deadline to turn in the field trip form and to be signed up on the google form is October 4th. Here's the link to the google form: https://forms.gle/euedpKpuuQ2AjkM58
