Lana Learn works with DC partners to ensure students have access to programs and opportunities to enhance their educational experiences.
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the month of November. That’s because while November officially marks the beginning of cold weather season (my least favorite), it is also the month where we celebrate Thanksgiving (my all-time favorite)! Throughout November, the Lana Learn team conducted several trainings and presentations at Cardozo High School, in conjunction with our partners from the Latino Student Fund. These trainings ensured Washington, DC program access to students. At a session held right after school, students had the opportunity to learn the basics of computer coding from a professional instructor all while enjoying pizza, games, and the ever-popular Krispy Kreme donuts 😉.
The following week, we partnered with the Latino Student Fund and the Department of Health & Human Services to recruit students for the Latino Student Fund’s Te Guio and Listo programs. The students were great, our partners were great, and both the coding class and the recruitment session were a hit!
We sure are thankful to have amazing partners that work tirelessly to give students the opportunity to enhance their educational experiences. On the other hand, we’re grateful for the students that make this work so rewarding. We look forward to continuing to provide Washington, DC program access to all students.
