What Works for Latino Youth. First Edition.
White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, Washington, DC.
The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans works with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Latino community-based organizations, educators, and youth advisors to identify programs that work for Latino youth. This directory compiles the programs recommended to date and is a work in progress. Some programs were created specifically to serve young Hispanics, while others have shown strong benefits to Latino youth while serving broader populations. Most of the programs presented are comprehensive programs that are based in community strengths and offer culturally and linguistically appropriate services. The 67 programs are listed alphabetically in five categories: early childhood and elementary programs, middle and high school programs, K-12 programs, multiservice agencies, and community and youth. Each entry contains contact information and brief descriptions of the program's mission, services offered, and evidence of effectiveness. (SV)
