The Latino College Expo fosters the educational aspirations and goals of middle school and high school students by providing an array of specialized programs sensitive to the needs of all students, with a particular focus on the Latino community.
These programs, and services are designed to assist students and parents with individualized consulting and a holistic plan of action that will help achieve the highest outcome for academic and personal success.
In 1990, the Latino College Expo (LCE) was founded in response to the need for specific information and guidance for Latino students, and their families in New York City who were pursuing college yet uncertain about the process.
They recognized the need to expose families to more options in higher education and help link them to colleges and universities who were eager to enroll them. This became the foundation of the organization. The vehicle they chose was an annual fair and the Latino College Expo (LCE) was born.
Since then, LCE has expanded to provide a wider array of services, and events that further propel the message that "Education is the Key to the Future".
These offerings have expanded to support school guidance programming, including: students 18-24, GLBTQ youth, homeless youth, non-traditional careers, support admissions professionals with best practices, and all stakeholders that will help to "Make IT Happen".
In addition, LCE has partnered with Making IT Happen, LLC to further their online outreach and services, beyond New York City, not only around education, but the visual & performing arts, health & wellness, professional career development seminars and webinars … to create more comprehensive holistic offerings, to produce a larger pool of future leaders.
We have partnered with AMNY/METRO LATINO daily & weekly newspapers in NYC & Long Island to author a bilingual monthly article providing tips and valuable information to help guide students, parents, guardians & counselors along the paths of the secondary & post-secondary processes.
