Advancing Latino/a Achievement and Success (ALAS)
Nurturing a College-Going Culture
Advancing Latino/a Achievement and Success (ALAS) is an educational alliance uniting SJSU, the National Hispanic University and the Santa Clara County Superintendents Association, in a mission dedicated to the growth and expansion of a college-going culture among our Latino/a youth.
Spreading Information in a Biennial Conference
Every other year, ALAS organizes a conference highlighting programs and strategies that prepare and motivate our students and their families to overcome any barriers to their dreams of going to college. The video below features scenes from the Third Biennial ALAS Conference held in February 2012.
More information about the wealth of information made available to students during the event may be found in the bilingual conference program (PDF).
The Next Conference
The next ALAS Conference will be held at SJSU in February 2014.
