Encuentros Classroom Education Program

During the school year 2004-2005, the Encuentros Board of Directors launched a classroom education project at two middle school sites in North County. The project was a classroom curriculum targeting Latino boys utilizing the textbook Encuentros: Hombre A Hombre. The two sites were chosen because of the high Latino population and dramatic Latino student growth over the past 5 years. A total of 40 boys were enrolled. Based on the success at these school sites, the Vista Unified School District has agreed to implement ongoing Encuentros school site programs.
