ANNUAL DREAM CATCHERS

TRANSFER MOTIVATIONAL CONFERENCE

University of Texas at  Austin



The Catch the Next Dream Catchers Transfer Motivational Conference is designed to introduce community college students to University life experience and to motivate them to transfer to a four year University.  Only fifteen percent of Latinos in the US have a Bachelor’s degree and four percent have an advance degree. When looking at African Americans, only twenty two percent have a Bachelor’s degree and six percent of have an advance degree. For these figures to improve, transferring to a four year University is crucial to the Latino and African American communities. The same urgency applies to other first generation underserved students in Texas. Participating in the summer conference will offer as a unique opportunity for our Catch the Next Dream catcher -Puente students to have an on-campus dormitory experience at Texas’s flagship university.
