AMEXCAN at ECU
The purpose of this organization is to connect AMEXCAN with the Pirate community, and through the pirate community reach out to the Pitt County area. We want to work towards creating a more inclusive community on campus for Latinos by educating about Latin American culture and hosting enriching events. We will also be sponsoring 2 students through fundraising for a scholarship to help people who deserve a chance to experience the wonders of education. Another goal of this organization is to take a trip to Veracruz, Mexico to spread aspects of leadership, advocacy, education, and community to a designated school where we will also be teaching ESL classes. Lastly we strive to focus on our own community by helping Latino youth and parents to become aware and informed of the ECU campus and process of going to university. We will be including a cultural awareness event as a part of this ECU tour.
