Youth Festival (4 folders), 1982-1985

 File — Box: 85


From the Series:

This series documents the various programs and components of the Youth Development Unit and their administration through correspondence, interoffice memoranda, program descriptions, reports, evaluations, and publicity materials. There is extensive material in this series pertaining to the different relationships the Youth Development Unit has maintained with the Boston Public Schools. The Boston Public Schools materials document both the Boston Public School's and La Alianza Hispana's activities in relation to issues such as bilingual education and desegregation.

The series also contains resources files pertaining to youth issues such as child care, alternative education, and employment and training. These files were produced by government agencies and other social service organizations. Studies of the Youth Development Unit conducted by scholars and individuals from outside La Alianza Hispana, such as "Hispanic Children in Need" by Esmeralda Santiago, are included in the resource files.

Refer to the historical note as well as Series 1, Executive Director: Organizational History and Series 2, Grants and Contracts for more history on La Alianza Hispana's youth programs.
