Youth will receive a journal and pencils to record their stories and poems and a professional anthology that showcases the best of their work from the school year.

Maria Maria's menu springs from the musical mind of the legendary Carlos Santana and the experienced hands of chef Roberto Santibañez. Maria Maria specializes in Mexican cuisine that sprinkles a contemporary twist on time-tested traditions. For lunch (served daily 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.), you may pair one soup or salad with one lunch-portion entree ($10.50), or you can add an additional soup, salad, or a side of rice and beans ($12.50) for a meal as balanced as a tight-rope walker giving unasked-for nutritional advice. Tomatillo tortilla soup is soulfully simmered with all-natural vegetable broth, roasted jalapeños, tomatillos, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro, and then topped with diced panela cheese, crispy tortillas, and wild mushrooms in a hearty mixture. Fresh mangoes, grilled shrimp, queso fresco, toasted almonds, raisins, and sesame seeds get cozy atop the spinach mango salad tossed with honey-lime vinaigrette. A burrito Maria arrives on plates perfectly packaged with red onions, roasted corn and poblanos, black beans, and cheese rolled in a flour tortilla with beef or chicken and topped with creamy tomatillo-pasilla sauce.
