Research and Resources

Voices Logo 

The Alliance for the Advancement of Heritage Languages has developed the Heritage Voices Collection, an online series of documents designed to allow heritage language speakers and programs to share their unique voices with visitors to our Web site. The Heritage Voices Collection will feature profiles on both programs and languages and are designed to help build community among all those interested in preserving our rich heritage of language resources.

The Alliance has developed templates to provide guidance for individuals or programs who wish to submit a profile for consideration for our Heritage Voices Collection. We encourage you to follow these guidelines to create the appropriate structure for your submission while retaining your personal writing style and voice. The Heritage Voices Collection is designed to offer a blend of interesting information and personal experience that we hope our readers will find of interest.
