Estudiantes de Aztlán

Escuelita Aztlán (EAZ) is an independent Saturday School organized by educators and youth organizers within Unión del Barrio. EAZ serves two goals: to develop more cultural and political conciencia among young people in our communities, and to help build our long-term vision of an independent Raza liberation school.

EAZ aims to provide academic help as well as college guidance to the students of EAZ after their Saturday Sessions. We accept all majors in order to assist students in high-school level math, science, and writing courses.

Information Sessions

Tuesday Oct. 3rd, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Thursday Oct. 5th, 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
Monday Oct. 9th, 3 p.m. - 4 p.m.

All information sessions will take place in the Raza Resouce Centro Conference Room. The info sessions will consist of a break down of the program, a detail of the site visit and other crucial information. 

Site Visits

All visits are from 9:00 a.m. - 1 p.m on pre-announced Saturdays (dates coming soon). Transportation is provided.

Expectations

Estudiantes de Aztlán participants are expected to actively engage in all activities and trainings, including planning workshop sessions as needed. Because of the importance of consistency for the middle school/ high school students, participants may only miss two of the site visits. All participants are expected to attend two training sessions (dates coming soon). Students are expected to attend the first site visit on Saturday Nov. 4. If unable to attend the Nov. 4th visit, please contact Vivianne Silva.
