Thank you to everyone who made the 4th Annual Es El Momento: Feria de Educación an overwhelming success!
2012 Es El Momento: Feria de Educación
Over 35,000 Spanish-speaking parents and students attended the 2012 Feria de Educación. Presented by Univision KMEX, California State University system and CSU Dominguez Hills, families enjoyed over a hundred different educational organizations and interactive booths. A special highlight this year was the expansion of the Parent Workshops to include over 40 sessions on Admissions & Financial Aid, AB 540 and Deferred Action. As in each Feria experience, children received free books and professional photos in career costumes.
Es El Momento: Feria de Eduación is a Los Angeles expansion of Feria Para Aprender. In 2009, the first event (Feria Deja Huella) attracted more than 20,000 Spanish-speaking parents and students to CSU Dominguez Hills. Es El Momento: Feria de Educación quickly grew with over 50,000 parents and students attended the 3rd annual event in 2011.
At each Feria, parents learn how to successfully navigate their children through the U.S. education system. More than 100 exhibits are offered by educational non-profits, colleges, universities, and industry representatives. Spanish-language academic experts and volunteers are on-hand to inform and guide parents. Hundreds of Feria participants receive training ahead of the event on how to best engage Spanish-language dominant families around education, college attainment, and careers.
