Community Spanish Interpreting A.A.S
I had an amazing career in the Army for 17 years. I am an adjunct instructor at Sampson Community College. I am a volunteer English/Spanish interpreter at Midway Middle and Midway High Schools. I have decided to work with Juntos at SECHS because students and their families need access to the knowledge, skills, and resources needed for their success. With hard work, support, and guidance, a student can have achieved success in meeting their future goals.
The Juntos Mission:
The Mission of the Juntos Program is to help Latino students achieve high school graduation and attend higher education.
What is Juntos?
Juntos (pronounced “Who-n-toes”) means “Together” in Spanish and works to unite community partners to provide Latino 8-12th grade students and their parents with knowledge, skills, and resources to prevent youth from dropping out and to encourage families to work together to gain college access. Research shows that Latino youth are at the greatest risk for dropping out of school between the 9th and 10th grades. The Juntos Program reduces this risk by bringing together cohorts of 8th-grade youth to support each other for 3-5 years as they enter high school and prepare together for higher education. The multifaceted partnerships between Extension’s 4-H and FCS agents, school and college administrators and staff, and other community volunteers are what make the Juntos Program a sustainable success in many communities across the U.S.
