Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $67,076)

The Jr. Aztec Program that Aztecs Rising envisions is versatile, far-reaching, and pioneering. The Cypress Park/ Highland Park section of Congressional District 31 has been identified as an area in great need of youth services/resources and our agency can be used as a conduit for improvement. It is envisioned that the proposed services will link area providers, school personnel, parents, colleges, universities, parks and recreation, municipalities, business owners, hospitals, libraries, museums, and additional public assistance facilities, such as, the One Stop Employment program via an interactive infrastructure accessing communication and resources for the benefit of our target population. Equaling and meaning, the proposed youth services provided will foster and promote the larger goal to avert the ongoing escalation of criminal and delinquent behavior and promote school success and healthy social development. It is envisioned that such a vital collaborative structure will allow clients to take advantage of workshops, tours, and training under a variety of unique circumstances, such as, viewing a surgical operation, to touring City Hall and colleges, to witnessing a presentation by the F.B.I., advancing a community service project for children, to participating in self-esteem, sex education, and employment readiness courses.
