The Tarde de Familia event was originated by Dr. Rodolfo Jacobo, Jr. in order to create a space where Palomar College students in general and Latino students (in particular) can be exposed to Latino professionals who emanate from a disadvantaged socio-economic background. The presenters share their personal stories of overcoming hardship and the importance of their education in achieving their dreams.
In addition to exposing our students to these success stories, the event also seeks to create ownership of the academic space in the larger community. Parents and young children are a large part of these events in addition to our students and faculty.
