HOLA – Hispanic Outreach and Leadership at Savannah Tech Program

The Hispanic community at Savannah Technical College believes that our culture contributes in many ways in society today. According to the 2014 census, the Hispanic American population in Georgia experienced an increase of nearly 96%. Just in the counties that surround Savannah; Chatham, Tattnall, and Toombs, the total population is approximately 23,000 Latinos, representing an average of 6% of the total population in the three counties. That is why Savannah Technical College embraces the Hispanic culture and all ethnic backgrounds.

The college has committed to increasing the Hispanic/Latino student population through the Hispanic Outreach and Leadership (HOLA) Program. The mission of the HOLA Program is to be a liaison between STC and Hispanic/Latino students to increase the percentage of this community at Savannah Technical College through the process of enrollment, retention and graduation at a post-secondary level.

We offer different services like community outreach, admissions and career advisement, personal and/or group tours, Financial Aid assistance, and translation assistance, among others.

As part of our program, we have joined with the Learning Enrichment Center (LEC) to help our students succeed in their classes. HOLA and LEC have created workshops in different areas, such as in reading, writing and math. So, if you think that you need help in any of those areas don’t hesitate to attend to the workshops that STC has for you.
