The Latino Youth Career and College Fair Planning Committee is pleased to announce the 9th Annual LYCCF scheduled for Friday, March 21, 2014 at the Madison College Truax Campus, entitled "Dream It. Achieve It. / Querer Es Poder"
The event is a collaborative effort of Edgewood College, Madison College and the Madison Metropolitan School District. The day provides an opportunity for up to 400 area high school youth to receive career and post-secondary information delivered entirely in Spanish.
What does the day entail?
The day is composed of career workshop presentations, a performance during lunch, door prizes and an end-of-the-day college fair. In the morning, clusters of career fields will be presented in Spanish by Latino area/content experts in a workshop/panel presentation setting. The afternoon sessions are devoted to preparing for college, financial aid, employment soft-skills, and career exploration.
The college fair, scheduled for the afternoon, provides all students the opportunity to learn about Wisconsin colleges and universities and helps them make a connection with Spanish-speaking staff at these institutions.
