Local students attended the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) Student Leadership Conference in San Francisco where Wells Fargo and HSF offered educational training sessions to students from 38 HSF National Scholar chapters across the country.
These HSF scholars will be able to bring their learnings from the conference back to the community to teach fellow students about a wide range of issues including social marketing, communications and debt management.
"Wells Fargo is committed to working with valued non-profit partners like HSF that are leading the way in helping to prepare individuals who seek to achieve their higher education goals," said Tim Hanlon, head of Philanthropy for Wells Fargo. "We invest in education and in our neighborhoods because we understand that when our communities have access to vital resources and quality education, we are helping individuals to flourish and thrive."
The goal of programs like HSF's Leadership Conference with Wells Fargo is to encourage and empower students to attend college and graduate with a degree. To contribute to the ongoing effort, Wells Fargo and HSF recently announced a scholarship program at the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) 33rd Annual Convention on September 18 to provide 40 scholarships for students who are dependents of USHCC members.
