(Storm Lake, IA) -- On Sunday, October 13th, 2019, seventeen Latino students from Storm Lake High School and Storm Lake St. Mary’s High School, together with their parents, celebrated the completion of a community-based extension program that brings Latino parents, students (11th-12th grades) and a variety of community partners for a 6 session workshop series to promote high school graduation and heighten family awareness that college attendance is a realistic goal.
Juntos (Together for Success) uses Spanish curriculum adapted by Iowa State University Extension’s for parents’ preparation and understanding of the financial options for college while they establish relationships among community resources.
Students and parents will better understand the requirements for graduation and success in the U.S. school system and will increase their skills and knowledge of the college application process.
Community partners include ISU Extension and Outreach and Storm Lake Community School District to assist Storm Lake Latino families.
Juntos brings together partners from ISU Extension, high schools and local community colleges, youth and their families, and college-age mentors to show Latino youth and their parents learn how to help Latino youth succeed in school and attain access to higher education.
Juntos applies culturally appropriate activities and specially crafted concepts that are designed to meet the needs of Spanish-speaking parents and youth.
