Ayudando Latinos A Soñar is dedicated to giving creative expression to Latino youth, families and farmworkers of Half Moon Bay to celebrate identity and preserve the rich cultures, traditions and values of Mexico and Latin America through our weekly programs of cultural arts, education, social justice advocacy and farmworker outreach. ALAS is committed to inspiring the community through our cultural arts programs of Ballet Folklorico Tonantzin and Mariachi Media Luna. We are building bridges towards higher education for our children through our tutoring and leadership program. As we all live under the same moon, we believe in a social justice model of advocacy for immigrant and human rights. We value each child, individual and family that is part of ALAS. Our motto, tu lucha es mi lucha defines our belief that we are here to join in the struggle to soar above and be a program where all cultures can come together to dream.

We are proud to see our youth rise as leaders becoming visible in an often invisible space.
