Our office is committed to promoting the value of a higher education throughout the Hispanic/Latino community. HOLA’s outreach efforts concentrate on educating the local community on relevant issues and opportunities in higher education. We accomplish this by collaborating with local and university outreach programs, providing informative presentations, and contributing articles to the local bilingual journal.
In addition to one-on-one counseling to Hispanic/Latino students, we also provide special presentations (on a need basis) in both English and Spanish to the community in Savannah and around the state of Georgia. We have worked closely with the Consulates of Mexico, Ecuador and El Salvador, Primera Iglesia Bautista Hispana de Savannah, People on the Way, Peruanos en Savannah, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Live Oak Migrant Education Agency, Hilton Head High School and Echols County Community Center.
We offer a wide array to choose from, including the following:
- College Planning
- College Funding
- Financial Aid
- Hispanic Culture
- Scholarship Applications
- U.S. Education System
