¡YA Habla!

Hello Young Ambassadors.
As we look back at the accomplishments of the past year, we had an active year of alumni engagement and celebration which we hope is just the start of exciting new collaborations. We would like to thank all of the Young Ambassadors who participated in the Ten Year Anniversary Alumni Weekend. It was a special celebration bringing alumni from across the years and walks of life. Over 75 Young Ambassadors joined the Smithsonian and the Ford Motor Company Fund in looking back at the impact of the program and in preparing for the next ten years. If you have not had a chance to see the YAP Impact Video please take a few minutes to look at your network and its impact. Read more...

Conexiones: This fall and winter, YAP-AN held Conexiones in Atlanta, Miami, New York, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C. We are so excited to hear from you and connect alumni with each other. For spring 2016, we would like to add Los Angeles and Chicago to our regional network reunions. If you are interested in co-hosting an event or attending an event, please email Alana Zamora at

Alcanzemos Summer Reading Days: 2015 Young Ambassadors and alumni participated in Summer Reading Days in local libraries across the country. During the program, YAP participants and alumni led a children's story time and civic engagement activity promoting early childhood literacy. The activity and storytime (Side by Side, Lado a Lado: The Story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez) were developed to correlate with the exhibition One Life: Dolores Huerta at the National Portrait Gallery. A total of 13 outreach events reaching a total of approx. 280 participants. Thank you to all the alumni who participated in these outreach efforts. The Smithsonian Latino Center gratefully acknowledges major and continued program support from Ford Motor Company Fund.
