WHAT is Comunidad Summer Enlace?
Comunidad Summer Enlace is an interactive one-week virtual academy designed to ease the transition into college for incoming first-year, Modesto Junior College (MJC) Latinx students. We will be online, daily via Zoom from 10am-11:45am, Monday-Thursday for one week. Students can choose to participate in session A (June 7-10) or session B (July 12-15). If you are a student that is not able to participate in the virtual academy due to lack of access to technology or internet, please fill out the form as well. Enlace is derived from the Spanish word enlazar, which means to unite, to connect, to link.
WHAT will we DO?
You will get an opportunity to engage and get familiar with MJC as you prepare to begin your first semester in college. Listen, converse, and learn from inspiring MJC Latinx faculty, counselors, and staff. We will provide tips on navigating college, as you learn about MJC services and resources. Connect with other students and participate in online interactive activities!

Transitioning to college is not an easy task, and due to COVID-19, the online environment has been a challenge to many students.
