Knowledge is Power

This DPI funded program is a collaborative effort between UWM TRIO & Pre-College Programs and Esquela Verde High School.  The following are the five program initiatives: start early awareness of career options and how to achieve them; motivate, encourage, and assist students to graduate from high school and seriously consider post-secondary education; familiarize students with the college experience; provide parents/families with information, encouragement, and assistance in order to support their children’s efforts; and provide students and parents an opportunity to become familiar with the UWM campus.  These goals are achieved through various activities, such as providing classroom materials, academic & career field trips, academic tutoring, and career workshops.
