HOLA Summer Program Helps Latino Students Succeed at RCC

Rogue Community College (RCC) offers a summer bridge program to help Latino students who have recently graduated from high school continue to succeed at the college level.

Now in its eighth year, the Helping Oregon Latinos Advance (HOLA) program is a fun and free five-day program held at RCC's three campuses in Grants Pass, Medford and White City. The program offers students an opportunity to connect with peers and learn about college resources before the start of fall classes. Transportation, lunch and snacks are provided.

Applications are being accepted now for the 2018 HOLA program, which will meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 10-14. To register, participants must apply for admission to RCC and take a placement test. For more information about the HOLA program and registration, contact Kevin Chavez Martinez at 541-245-7585 or

HOLA participants will visit RCC's three campuses, learn about scholarship opportunities and college resources, develop success skills and create a plan to pay for college. HOLA is hosted by the RCC Student Services Administration.

HOLA is supported by a $1,500 grant from the Anna May Family Foundation. The foundation awards grants annually through a competitive process with the mission of helping those most in need who are less able to help themselves. Since it was established in 1999, the Medford-based foundation has been a regular supporter of the college's Latino outreach programs.
