The records document the administration, programs and civic contributions of this groundbreaking social service agency. Furthermore, they help chronicle the organizational evolution of the institution and the numerous initiatives it undertook to support Puerto Rican and Latino youth in New York City. A small but insightful collection, highlights of the records include materials on key programs such as the Youth Leadership Development Program, as well as organizational offshoots like the Office of Research and Advocacy and the ASPIRA Clubs Federation. The collection documents the organization’s engagement with current issues in education and politics and its extensive involvement in and influence on decision-making. The materials consist of correspondence, memoranda, minutes, photographs, flyers, clippings, proposals, contracts, reports, speeches, videos, slides and financial statements.
