The Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas’ Latinas in Progress (LIP) Education Series has come to Texans Can Academy – Oak Cliff to expose senior high school Latinas to college life and helps prepare them for success in their personal and professional lives.

The LIP Education Series meets with the students on college campuses for every event and teaches them about applying to college and college life, ways to improve their writing skills, how to be more assertive, the importance of civic participation, health and wellness tips, other important life skills, and college campus safety.

This school year, students have visited Tarrant County College to learn about aviation studies and tour facilities; took a tour of the Southern Methodist University campus and attended a workshop about careers, admissions, and applications; and toured The University of Texas at Dallas campus.
