About the San Antonio VOE

IDRA and the Consulate General of Mexico in San Antonio are partnering to help Mexican and Mexican American families navigate the U.S. education system and learn about important educational opportunities in both countries. The program, called Ventanilla de Orientación Educativa (VOE), provides information on the civil rights of immigrant and English learner students, local educational services, and resources on how to access and succeed in college. See bilingual brochure.

IDRA produced this webinar series to provide information to families while the Consulate was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
