Padres Estrellas

Padres Estrellas


Funded by Indiana’s Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP), five Padres Estrellas – translated from “Star Parents” – work with community organizations focused on empowering Hoosier Hispanic and Latino communities to provide college and career support to students and families across the state.

The Padres Estrellas connect with schools, neighborhoods and community partners and focus on helping students and families enroll in the 21st Century Scholars program and the Next Level Jobs Workforce Ready Grant with the goal of increasing student access and attainment to higher education.

To enroll your student in the 21st Century Scholars program or to learn more about the Next Level Jobs Workforce Ready Grant, please contact the Padre Estrella below closest to your residence.
