UHD Volunteers Needed for Houston Hispanic Forum Event

By: Mary Ann Cozza

Once again, UHD is co-sponsoring the Houston Hispanic Forum's Careers & Education Day (CED) from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, in the George R. Brown Convention Center.

This event focuses on improving Hispanic achievement in the greater Houston area through information and dialogue, service, collaborations, and promoting awareness of educational issues affecting Hispanics.

Admission to the event is free and attendees can participate in student and parent workshops, meet with college representatives, and learn about career and financial aid opportunities.

This year, the CED is also seeking volunteers from UHD to staff an information desk, assist with registration, monitor halls and entrances, and more. People can volunteer alone or in groups and are encouraged to wear their UHD T-shirts as a sign of pride.

Information on the forum can be found here. Email Frida Villalobos, FVillalobos@hawc.org, for more information on volunteering.
