Aztlan Center

To foster communication, understanding, and trust between all Prescott residents and act as a safe resource for Prescott's immigrant community

 
Aztlan Center - Aztec God Mural,

To foster communication, understanding, and trust between all Prescott residents and act as a safe resource for Prescott's immigrant community.

The Aztlan Center is a student-run organization dedicated to the education and empowerment of the Xican@/Latin@/and Indigenous community in Prescott and in Arizona. The Aztlan Center is introducing a mentoring program between Prescott High School and Prescott College with the goal of increasing recruitment of Latin@ and Indigenous students at Prescott College through building relationships and facilitated assistance with the college application process.

Currently we have 13 Prescott College students involved in our club.  There is a lot of energy and excitement for it to move forward as part of Prescott College and eventually a 501C Non-Profit. Recruitment of Xican@/Latin@/Indigenous students at Prescott College is in line with our social justice mission.  Furthermore it is a great opportunity for us to build relationships between Prescott College and the Prescott community. Many of our PC student members are studying education, psychology, and global studies are interested in pursuing careers working with young people. As a whole this project is directly doing the work of the College to increasing diversity on our campus.

We will be meeting with the youth once a week starting Oct. 17 - for the mentoring sessions. In addition, we have a one-hour meeting on campus once a week for planing and organizing curriculum/strategy. In the near future we will be kick-starting a tutoring program on campus where we will be meeting with high school students here and working with them one-on-one helping them with their homework.
