Community Graduation Celebration 2019, San Diego Central Library - Shiley Events Center, Thursday, 06. June 2019

Educational achievements are not celebrated enough for underrepresented, African American & Latino students. Accordingly, the Community Graduation Celebration will focus on moving the needle toward increased interest in higher education among underrepresented students by celebrating these educational milestones that are far too often overlooked. In California, and across the nation, research indicates that although college enrollment rates are low for Latino and African American groups, these groups represents a large population in correctional institutions. Supporting educational efforts (college enrollment, retention & degree acquisition) and celebrating educational milestones are instrumental in shifting this dynamic.
The purpose of this event is to celebrate the academic accomplishments (high school and college graduates) of historically underrepresented, first-generational, financially-disadvantaged students from under-served communities. The event will consist of a free dinner for families*, graduate recognition, resource tables, and a dance.
