New Furniture at our Office

UnidosNow offices at the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Resource Center is now looking like a million dollar place, all thanks to Suzi Atherton of the Manatee Community Foundation.

Atherton connected us to Caitlyn Durfee of TechHouse, who donated the beautiful conference table you see in the picture. It fits perfectly in our office! TechHouse also gifted our organization a beautiful desk and very much needed filing cabinets. We are tremendously grateful for their support.

But the furniture wouldn’t have arrived to UnidosNow if it wasn’t for our team member Wendy Barroso and her entire family, who picked up the furniture and rearrange our office.

Thank you, Suzi. Thank you, Caitlyn. Thank you, Barroso family. It’s this kind of collective effort what makes us stronger.

The SACAC Summer Program for Counselors

The Southern Association for College Admission Counseling (SACAC) summer program took place in the beautiful city of St. Augustine, where Flagler College hosted the event.

UnidosNow counselors, Lisbeth Oscuvilca and Wendy Barroso, spent three full intense training days learning best practices in college counseling. This event brought together professionals to share their experiences in counseling different types of students in private, public and charter school settings.

In addition to the 12 hours of classroom sessions, our counselors visited Flagler College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Jacksonville University, Bethune-Cookman University, University of Florida, and University of North Florida. Each school gave a lot of good, new information to our counselors that they are using to assist our students in the summer and school programs.
