In the interview, Dr. Chavez will be asked questions about the change in the status of the Hispanic and Latin Americans before and after it became compulsory to observe Latinx Heritage Month; the most satisfying contribution that CTN has made toward the Hispanic and Latin American community; and how someone who wants to help can start on a journey to be an ally.
Dr. Chavez will focus on Catch the Next’s decision to concentrate its efforts on higher education as a pathway to economic opportunity and stability given the high poverty rate and low attainment of college degrees among Hispanics; CTN’s culturally sustaining methodology which has transformed the instructional capacity of staff so that our students earn more certificates, associate degrees, and bachelor’s degrees than the control group of 110,000 in similar classes while spending two third less on student loans; and the various ways to become an ally including mentoring and internships.
