This is volume 1 of a two-volume series that addresses the critical need to forge closer ties between corporate America and Hispanic Americans. Volume 1 discusses preparing Hispanics to participate fully in American society through a variety of human development strategies. The strategies include the following: (1) increasing the quality and quantity of education for Hispanic children and adults; (2) preparing Hispanics for the fastest growing, best paying occupations; (3) reducing the number of Hispanic households living in poverty; (4) understanding and tapping the unique resources of Spanish-speaking communities; and (5) helping Hispanics to be wise consumers. Programs and organizations that have served the Hispanic community are highlighted. Descriptions of their services are given and contact information is provided. With the rapidly increasing Hispanic population it is imperative that the United States prepare Hispanics to become productive adults and knowledgeable consumers. (VM)
