This description of Maria Teresa Almada's work was prepared when Maria Teresa Almada was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
In an urban, border environment pervaded by broken dreams of a better life in the United States, where the best prospect most young people can hope for is employment in the maquiladora factories on the U.S.-Mexico border. Teresa Almada is developing a new approach to the prevention and treatment of drug abuse among adolescents.
