Family Conference – “College Making It Happen” took place Saturday, February 25 at CSUCI and we had over 325 people in attendance. Event was geared towards 9th and 10th graders and their families. We want to be able to motivate students to pursue and education and begin thinking about a possible career/profession and give parents the tools and knowledge to be able to support their student throughout this journey. We worked in collaboration with some of our college partners from CSUCI, Oxnard College, community partners as well as our own OUHSD staff to coordinate presentations where parents and students received valuable information. Presentations provided were: Financial Aid, Getting Prepared for College – What is Required, Student Portfolios, STEM Careers, Career Pathways-OUHSD Academies, Community College –What Does it Have to Offer, How do You Talk To Your Child About What Career/Profession they Want to Pursue?. We also provided campus tours throughout the day. All our presentations were offered in Spanish and English.
