Los Tweens & Teens partnered with Coca-Cola to create the #LifeEDU series to help parents help their teens prepare for college. Our program is part of the #ForTheDream campaign.
Education is a central focus among Latino families with so many planning for their child to be the first to attend college in the United States. This summer Coca-Cola and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund teamed up to make a difference and help more families achieve their education goals. The #ForTheDream program is helping Latino families and students prepare, plan and pay for their college education, and raising awareness of the college resources available to them.
Through this summer’s #ForTheDream movement Coca-Cola will donate $1 for every social post up to $10,000 to the Hispanic Scholarship! To add to the excitement Coca-Cola is also hosting the #ForTheDream sweepstakes where registered participants have a chance to win grants and a College Tour Experience! Check out all the details and enter before the August 31st deadline: http://coke.com/forthedream
