The Second Annual College Day organized by the Asian American Civic Association Youth Council on Sept. 30 hosted 38 colleges from around Massachusetts and attracted over 150 students and parents.
A sequel to a similar event last year, the College Day aimed at providing an opportunity for immigrant families to learn more about college admission process and financial aid application. The event also geared toward adult learners this year.
Quincy Mayor Tom Koch spoke on “Empowering Immigrant Communities in Quincy: Difficulties, Opportunities and Civic Engagement” at the Asian American Civic Association Summer 2012 Community Forum on July 12. Over 75 Chinatown and Quincy residents as well as community leaders attended the meeting.
