Making Sure that our Community Knows their Options.


Si Se Puede is a program focused on demystifying the higher education application process for the Latinx community.

Our Goal

The goal of Si Se Puede is to help Latinx families gain insight about the college application process. We aim to have open and honest conversations with our families about the serious roadblocks our communities face in pursuing higher education, while at the same time inspiring hope by providing them with the opportunity to be connected with resources, and successful individuals who share similar stories as them. 

Our Vision

Through this series of workshops parents and students will:

  • Gain confidence and hope in their academic future by being exposed to stories of individuals that come from similar backgrounds and situations. 

  • Feel a sense of belonging by connecting with other students and parents who are experiencing the same fears, doubts and uncertainty. 

  • Be empowered to be the active leaders of their own lives in regards to their future education and career.  

Who is Si Se Puede For?

Our Si Se Puede program is intended to support Latinx highschool freshmen, sophomores and juniors, while also providing a mentorship and leadership opportunity for Latinx college students. Si Se Puede will prioritize students who may not necessarily feel that college is an option for them, but will of course  also hold space for those who know that college is their gola, but may not know how to navigate the process. 

Si Se Puede is currently closed.

We will be re-opening our program in August 2021! 

Although we re-open our program in August, we encourage you to check out our recorded workshops from our previous years!
