Project Porvenir is a program to develop English as a Second Language (ESL) and native language arts (NLA) among limited-English-speaking, native Spanish-speaking students through career education. In its second year of operation, the project served 599 students of varying language proficiency in general and special bilingual education classes, grades 4-6, at four sites in the Bronx (New York). Students received instruction in ESL, NLA, career education, and bilingual content area courses. The project met its objectives in ESL, career education, curriculum development, and parental involvement. Objectives were partially met in attendance, but were not met in NLA. Data to evaluate the objectives for mainstreaming, social interaction, and staff development was insufficient. It is recommended that the program provide sufficient data to evaluate all objectives.
