SAPA served approximately 200 youth (ages K-12) through tutoring, after school and summer programs, and cultural orientation for newcomers to the Metro area. Around 75 parents were served through either cultural orientations, trainings or advocacy/support. Around 20 school staff received cross cultural training.
SAPA has not yet laid out a strategic and/or annual plan. This is a project that has been discussed at SAPA's April 2014 Board Meeting.
