Overview

“IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR – FROM CRADLE TO COLLEGE”

La feria es gratis y abierta para toda la familia. La información también se entregará en español.

The objective of the Education Fair is to promote a broad-based awareness of the crisis in Latino Education and to enhance the intellectual, cultural and personal development of our community's students, parents, educators, administrators and leaders.  The Feria Educativa College & Career Fair is a community-engagement activity where we inform and inspire, including...

  • Enthuse a college-going and career-readiness culture for all students to be prepared for a full range of post-secondary options; 
  • Engage parents and families, with special efforts to reach Latinos, as a critical component in believing that their children are "college material" and offer opportunities to understand their role in the college process, as well as other post-secondary career opportunities; 
  • Distribute/exhibit/present educational and career information and post-secondary opportunities, and other materials pertinent to community well-being (e.g. health, immigration, & civic engagement), and be available to support families; and
  • Build collective commitment and a partnership model that includes active involvement from all sectors of the regional community.

With a steering committee composed of a broad array of community stakeholders and organizations, coordinated by LEAD, CSUSB Division of Student Affairs, faculty, staff and students. The Educational Fair is intended to involve, engage, inspire, and inform families along their educational journey.
