Navigating college can seem overwhelming for first generation students, but an early outreach program at Arizona State University aims to change it. The Hispanic Mother-Daughter Program is for middle and high school students going on to higher education. Although the program was created in 1984 to increase postsecondary education rates among Latinas, the university said today, neither gender nor ethnicity are considerations, only whether the student is the first in their family to go on to college. Stephany Hernandez, a recent high school graduate, said the initiative has provided her the guidance and information she needed to feel more prepared.
