Cañada in Your Community
In April, Cañadians attended several community events, including the MLK Commemoration Festival in East Palo Alto, STEAM Festival in Redwood City and the San Mateo County Academic Open House. Cañada College also held a strong presence in this year’s Kermes Dia Del Niño in the North Fair Oaks community and promoted the College to more than 300 community members and hosted a coloring activity for the children. At all events, members from the College had the opportunity to give brief presentations and connected with community members at resource fairs.
Cañada College was also the host location for the 7th Annual OYE Latinx Youth Conference, which brought 350 people to campus on April 28. Participants youth and adults came together to support, stand together with the youth in our community and embrace the theme of “Who Am I?, Where Are We Going?” Cañada College students and staff facilitated workshops such as “ A Day in the Life of a College Student,” “Believe in Yourself and Embrace your Future,” “Making College a Reality for Undocumented Students” and “Define yourself and your Potential.”
