Los Barrios de Amarillo

Los Barrios de Amarillo

Los Barrios de Amarillo, affiliate civic organization of the AWCC has a 44 year history first established by Rev. Jacinto Alderete who served as Executive Director for 32 years.

It is a Hispanic professional organization open to the Amarillo community. It is composed of over 30 members who serve as volunteers and organize two youth leadership conferences a year.

The goal of this program is to reduce the drop-out rate among students and promote a higher level of educational attainment for success.

In 2014, we served over 599 students in one high school leadership conference and 15 students in our Los Barrios de Amarillo Scholarship Banquet. Through this scholarship banquet we award students a one-time $800-$1,000 scholarship. Due to low funds we were not able to have a 2014 middle school conference.

Two conferences allow us to serve more than 1,200 students a year. Our next middle school conference will be held in March. This next year we have secured the funding to have both middle school and high school career sessions.
