Since 2008, Comienza con un Sueño / It Begins with a Dream has sought to: 
  1. Increase student and parent knowledge and understanding of college preparation and admissions requirements, testing requirements, financial aid/scholarship availability (FAFSA/Cal Grant), post-secondary options (UC, CSU, CCC, etc...), Career options, UC Personal Statement and UC application requirements.
  2. Increase participant knowledge of support programs aimed at retaining students at UCSD and promoting advanced degrees.
  3. Enhance the relationship between UCSD and the Chicano/Latino community by increasing the contact and involving members of the community in the planning, implementation and evaluation processes of the event.

Our annual in-person event has reached up to 1,500 students, parents and guardians, and community leaders in past years. All together, our 12 years of planning and program have greatly impacted the lives of many participants. This year, due to COVID-19 and public health concerns we are going virtual and look forward to providing you and your community of students, parents, guardians, and advocates a meaningful and resource focused program that informs, inspires, and academically prepares your students for higher education.  Please share this flyer, view past years' recaps, and save Saturday February 27, 2021 from 9am to 12pm for this culturally relevant event.  

Sincerely,
Comienza con un Sueño Planning Committee
