Univision Communications Inc. announced a new expansion of Es el Momento (The Moment is Now) website, with the launch of “Go 4 It!,” a new bilingual section featuring digital content, including news, resources and information.
The latest page is aimed at young Hispanics transitioning from high school to college, and those currently in universities, and represents a continued commitment by the company to closing the education gap in Latino communities across the U.S. Univision’s own, Carlos Calderon, is the spokesperson for “Go 4 It!”
The “Go 4 It!” webpage features a steady stream of news on current events and educational trends, tutorials and interactive content aimed at addressing the needs of college-bound Hispanic students. The new section also showcases a series of student-driven blogs written by young Latino peers from across the country who will share their personal experiences and offer support on a variety of education-related issues, including navigating the college application process, identifying resource tools and capitalizing on student and employer opportunities.
In addition, “Go 4 It!” features video tutorials aimed at guiding students through the financial aid application process, as well as offering an in-depth look at different career paths. The website also provides a series of educational digital tools, including online college tours, a college search tool and a guide to find the college that best fits the student and his or her financial needs.  
To launch “Go 4 It!,” Univision extended its existing Es el momento partnership with YouVisit, Education Trust, the College Board, and  entered into a new partnership with The Chronicle of Higher Education, to provide content and support for the new section.
“We’re excited to deepen our existing relationship with Univision and Es El Momento,” said Kati Haycock, president of The Education Trust. “Ed Trust’s college search web tool, College Results Online, provides policymakers, counselors, parents, students, and others with important information about colleges and universities across the country. We hope that the inclusion of College Results Online on the ‘Go 4 It’ website will allow even more users to access the information that the platform offers.”
