HACER is a series of workshop events consisting of motivational assemblies, leadership development workshops, and parental involvement workshops. The workshops, such as one focused on college essay writing, aim to motivate and inspire students to overcome challenges and pursue a higher education. The workshops also provide educators, students and parents with relevant inspirational messages and exposure to key educational resources, while bringing awareness to the McDonald’s® HACER® National Scholarship. One student can receive a $100,000 scholarship.
