Voces Consulare: With Education, We All Advance!

By Alfonso Navarro-Bernachi

The Consulate of Mexico will participate from Monday, August 23 to Saturday, August 28 in the Binational Education Week (SBE in Spanish), with activities in Kansas City that seek to foster greater and better access to training and education opportunities for our communities in the United States.
Being aware of the diversity of interests and needs of our population, as well as its geographic location, the SBE2021 has a robust program thanks to the support of institutions located across our consular district: from Manhattan, Kansas to St. Louis, Missouri; Garden City, Kansas, and the Kansas City Metropolitan area.
Thus, we will present academic offers from Kansas State University and the University of Missouri, Kansas City (UMKC), and the adult education programs of our Plaza Comunitaria in St. Louis. There are also the Hispanic Economic Development Corporation computer courses in Spanish.
Joining this rich agenda of the SBE 2021 are: Guadalupe Centers Inc., Donelly College and Kansas City Kansas Community College, which are institutions with a long history in education and proximity to the community in our metropolitan area.
Being Kansas and Missouri home -sometimes temporary- to agricultural workers and their families, the Migrant Education Program will talk about its free educational services for this community, supplemented with information from the Consulate on the procedures for the revalidation of studies for children of school age returning to Mexico.
Those who attend the mobile consulate in Guymon, Oklahoma on Saturday 28, will be able to learn about the adult education opportunities available at Garden City Community College, headquarters of our Plaza Comunitaria in the southwest of our consular district, this being the only in person activity of the SBE 2021.

http://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/kansascity and prepare your questions for each and every one of the informative sessions that will be streamed via Facebook Live. For more information write to the Community Affairs Department at imekan@sre.gob.mx.
Together with you and your family, we strengthen ourselves as a community with information and opportunities to access education, adult training, revalidation of studies, and confidence building with the support of partner organizations in Kansas, Missouri, and the Western half of Oklahoma.
