Spring 2024 Immigrant Families Night event on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024, on El Camino College’s campus!

El Camino College invites Immigrant Families for an honest conversation-style presentation to address common fears, misconceptions, and unheard needs. Families will learn the responsibilities they must take on to support their students enroll in and graduate from college, as well as the resources that they are entitled to and how to access them. Finally, a call to action to get actively involved and encourage Higher Education among their families, friends, and neighbors.

Immigrant Families Night is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15th from 5:30pm until 8:30pm. It will take place at the Students Services Plaza which is located by Parking lot C and the Student Services Building on Manhattan Beach Blvd. There will be two presentations, one in English and one in Spanish.

The transition from high school to college can be challenging for students.  During the Immigrant Families Night, you will learn about:

  • Post-DACA: Why College is still worth it, pre-college checklist for parents and guardians, realities of first-gen student life, at-home support strategies, FERPA and other protections that make college safe, resources in college for undocumented students, and El Camino College’s commitment to their development and success.
