YALA Journal, 1990
The YALA journal is an annual publication of the Young Adult Learning Academy (YALA) in New York City, New York. This journal, one of many YALA publications and projects, was designed to encourage students to assume active roles in their education and to present their ideas, feelings, and craft to others. The YALA was established in 1984 to provide educational services for young people who had dropped out of school. In order to enter YALA, students must be between 16 and 24 years of age and read below the eighth-grade level. The 1990 journal was produced by a special class of full-time students who served as writers, editors, production helpers, and artists. Fifty-seven authors and five illustrators contributed almost 200 illustrations, photographs, prose, and poetry. This issue of the YALA journal contains seven sections: (1) One Life to Live; (2) The New Start; (3) Roots, Vibes, and Culture; (4) YALA Students Speak Out; (5) Secrets and Emotions; (6) All My Children; and (7) Memories. Lists of YALA staff, community-based organizations, and sponsoring agencies are included. (NLA)
