Women Empowered “WE” Conference
This free, two-day outreach/recruitment Conference was developed to provide outreach into our community to a much underserved population: women who are considering a return to school who are often overlooked in traditional outreach efforts. Conference workshops provide information on topics such as overcoming fears and gaining confidence in order to reach personal and educational goals. Information on GED preparation and testing, college enrollment, financial aid, and short-term technical certificate programs as well as personal and professional development is provided. This year's conference will also highlight a career fair!
Scholarship assistance is central to providing access to higher education to women. Accordingly, a highlight of the WE Conference is the presentation of scholarships to attend San Antonio College.

Fabulous Holiday Brunch & GED Scholarship Fundraiser
The Fabulous Holiday Brunch arose from very “humble beginnings," when founding chair Martha Tijerina and a group of friends, known as the Fabulous Holiday Brunch Leadership Committee, worked collectively to provide resources for non-traditional students (individuals over the age of 25 or single parents) who were taking GED classes. Discovering that many students did not have money to pay for their GED test/certificate, the Committee resolved to do something about it! The first Fabulous Holiday Brunch, held in December of 2008, was attended by over 200 people. Over its five-year history, more and more people have joined the effort and brunch attendance has grown to more than 600. The once-yearly volunteer effort held each December has raised more than $160,000. The SAC Women’s Center, through the Alamo Colleges Foundation, is the fiduciary administrator of the scholarship funds raised by the Fabulous Holiday Brunch.
The Sixth Annual Fabulous Holiday Brunch will be held Saturday, December 14, 2013.
