Hispanic Foundation’s College Success Summer Programs 2022
Quetzal Mama | College Writing Bootcamp Workshop   It’s summer which means our third annual College Writing Bootcamp has launched!    This intense 3-week course for Juniors and Seniors in High School gives students tools, tips, and strategies to write their University of California (UC) Personal Insight Questions for the fall college application season.    A big thank you to Dr. Roxanne Ocampo, founder of Quetzal Mama, who provides these workshops year-round.  Springboard Collaborative | Summer Site Visit   The HFSV team had the opportunity to visit the Adelante Dual Language Academy in East Side San Jose; the Springboard Collaborative program boosts students’ reading skills while strengthening family-educator relationships.    The most impactful takeaway from the site visit was seeing how engaged and collaborative students were with the fun assignments they had for the day.    Springboard also works closely with parents to provide weekly workshops that train parents on how to teach reading at home. We look forward to continuing in-person site visits and seeing the improvements and achievements of students upon completion.
Elevate Math | Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties   Three hundred students across eight different school districts from Santa Clara and San Mateo County participated in the Elevate [Math] programs!   Elevate [Math] is a summer intervention program led by the Silicon Valley Education Foundation for incoming 3rd-10th graders who are identified as “nearly meeting math standards” based on student SBAC scores or district recommendations.    Through this program, students build confidence in their math abilities and enter their next grade level prepared to succeed. Combined with a rigorous math curriculum, students are supported through collaborative learning activities, college readiness curriculum, and STEM career exposure. In Alum Rock Union School District, for example, there was a 169% increase in students (grades 3-8) meeting or exceeding their math standards after participating in this program!   Our programs team had the opportunity to visit two of our Elevate [Math] classrooms in action at LeyVa Middle School and South San Francisco. We were delighted to see students diving into new math concepts and thriving in a collaborative and fun environment.   Elevate [Math] – Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley (hfsv.org)
