 Youth Leadership & Development Familias Unidas operates a youth leadership development program for recent immigrant Latino youth, at Helms. Services expand their existing "Proyecto Bienestar" youth development program at the school, by implementing curriculum (one for young men and one for young women) to address youth failing school and experiencing significant barriers due to the challenges of acculturation into the school environment, their communities, and the overall culture. The program also includes case management/service linkages and peer mentoring components.
