AVANCE CEO Dr. Teresa Granillo will lead a session at the 2023 SXSW EDU Conference and Festival, discussing the Latino Two-Generation Ecosystem of Opportunity. The presentation, featured on the Community Initiatives track, will address the intersection of parenting, early childhood development, workforce development, and postsecondary education as well as how institutions within those domains can work together to alleviate some of the systemic barriers Latino families often face.

In 2021, AVANCE partnered with the University of Texas at El Paso to develop the Two-Generation Ecosystem of Opportunity, a model that combined PCEP with exposure to opportunities available through postsecondary education and workforce development. The resulting program, AVANCE to College, was piloted in El Paso in partnership with El Paso Community College and Workforce Solutions Borderplex.

This session is open to SXSW EDU attendees. You can also view this event on the official SXSW EDU Schedule.
