Through this program, the youth will be offered the opportunity to work for an employer and gain hands-on experience working in their respective, aspiring career fields.

According to Sophia Longoria, Adelante’s Youth Program Director, Adelante, Inc. is asking area organizations and agencies to act as host sites for the youth for approximately 8 weeks for 20 hours a week starting June 12-August 11.

Adelante will be hosting a career fair at the South Branch Library in Toledo on Tuesday May 30, 2006, 6:00-8:30 p.m. to introduce youth to potential employers.  Employers attending this event will have the opportunity to meet and interview the youth that are interested in positions with their companies.

This program for high school students was on the agenda this past Saturday when Adelante hosted a brunch for area educators at Manhattans Restaurant in uptown Toledo.

Also presented at this brunch by Adelante’s director, Sonia Troche, was a summer program for youths in grades 7th-8th which included tutoring, art classes, field trips, drug/alcohol prevention, community service opportunities, and leadership development.

According to Troche, transportation and lunch would be provided in the 7th-8th grades program and that girls enrolled in the program by June 30 would partake in 5 weeks of Science at COSI.

Troche also introduced Adelante’s ALAS program. ALAS stands for “Achieving Latinos Academic Success” and with this program Adelante strives to unite and collaborate area educators  and programs/organizations in organizing programs for the area Latino youth.

Adelante also offers a summer program for youths, grades 1st-6th from June 19-August 11, which includes tutoring, art classes provided by the Toledo Museum of Art, field trips, drug/alcohol prevention, and sports.

Educators at the brunch included: Josh Flores (Waite HS), Luis Linares (Start HS), Teresa Linares (Hawkins Elementary), Mary Morales (Waite HS), Luis Jiménez (Bowsher HS), Romey Herrera (Scott HS), Jeremy Holloway (Woodward HS), and Al Flores (Libbey HS).
