According to the Los Angeles Unified School District, where Latinos make up 74 percent of the high school student body, but fewer than 40 percent of Hispanics graduate. In an effort to address the growing U.S. education gap, New Futuro, Allstate Insurance Company and over 300 organizations from the education, non-profit, business and government sectors have partnered to launch a, bilingual educational community designed to help Latino families get their students into college.
Marty R. Castro, Esq. Chairperson and Co-Founder of New Futuro said, “Increasing Latino college education rates is key to the future prosperity of our nation. It’s not a Latino issue, it’s an American issue and one that can only be solved by working together,”
New Futuro will host five College Prep Fairs presented by Allstate around the country in Los Angeles (September 29), Houston (October 6), New York City (October 20), Miami (October 27) and Chicago (November 10). This FREE events include hundreds of bilingual representatives from universities, colleges, and community organizations, as well as dozens of small educational sessions with college and career experts.
