Café Con Leche does an amazing job of helping first-time college students access financial aid, navigate the enrollment process and ultimately succeed in their higher education efforts.
Café Con Leche also allows parents to learn more about education and career opportunities for their children in a non-threatening setting.
Facilitated by Gonzalo Robles, Educational Consultant, these forums take place in familiar places, such as schools, universities, community centers, neighborhoods and churches around the state.
Robles encourages parents to discuss the fears and obstacles they face when making decisions about sending their students to a post-secondary educational institution and creating a “Culture of High Expectations” at home.
Robles’ vision is to have families thinking and planning for college from the time their students enter elementary school.
Café Con Leche was first developed by the Institute for Public School Initiatives (IPSI) at The University of Texas at Austin.
