This week Univision network announced its “¡Edúcate, Es el momento!” Call to Action Week to drive very strongly a need for all Latinos to unite in the name of our children’s education. And there is a strong scholarship initiative tied to the program, here is their Facebook Fan page.
While we are just getting started here at the Los Tweens community, even before we tell you WHY we exist, we want you to know that Education of our Tweens (7-12 year olds)- will be a central theme and focus for us. At this age children are faced with a major shift from the “oh so cute” Kindergarten – second grade years to the ‘this is serious’ stage. At this age they are forming good study habits that will impact the rest of their educational career and life learning. So si, nos tenemos que educar todos- y ayudar a nuestros hijos (Yes, we need to all educate ourselves and help our children). We will be bringing you resources, ideas and tips to help children achieve academic and social success during these stressful years.
Juntos podemos! Together we can!
