Summer TAG | ALERTA Program Information

Project ALERTA is very proud of its many accomplishments throughout its 31-year history, especially being selected by the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities to receive one of 15 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards, the highest honor for youth arts programs in the United States, in 2010.

"I want to give thanks to all of my teachers for pushing me far. When I went to the White House I said to myself, 'Am I dreaming?' I was also really nervous until Michelle Obama hugged me.” Noelia Lugo, ALERTA participant
