About Las Llaves

What Is Las Llaves?

“Las Llaves del Éxito” (“The Keys to Success”) is a special program offered by the Dallas County Community College District that consists of two one-day events held each year.

The fall program, Las Llaves del Éxito: A College Fair for Families, is designed to give students and their parents the key to their success: information about how to navigate the system so they can attend a college or university.

The spring program, the Las Llaves del Éxito Leadership and Career Spring Symposium, encourages students to explore their academic and career interests while developing leadership skills essential for their success.  

Both events are free and open to the public.
