YLF/ALE Day - Feb. 28th, 2013
Advancements of Latinos in Engineering and Young Latina Forum are both outreach event hosted by SHPE UA every year to motivate students in high school to pursue a career in the STEM fields. The purpose of ALE is to expose male high school students, grades 9-12, to the university setting and to encourage them to pursue careers in Engineering, Math and Science. The YLF is an event that is geared toward the success of Latinas in our community. These objectives are especially important since there is a lack of diversity within the university and corporate setting; more specifically there is a need of Latino/a engineering students and professionals.

La Familia is an event held by SHPE UA every year to teach members of our community how to use computers. Through the series of workshop that SHPE UA creates and runs, the attendees obtain the ability to continue learning long after they have gone through the day-long series of workshops, which introduces them to the basics of computers. This year's event hosted more than 80 members who were eager to learn and apply their learnings of computer usage to their everyday lives. The workshop that everyone liked the best was the workshop where the atendees were taught how to create a facebook acccount!
