A program seeking to show that Latino culture is the flavor and aroma of musical rhythms. Synchronizing  religious dance and performances can help people understand how Latinos see the world. 


A special photography project; each child will recieve a free camera and can take pictures of anything they choose. This gives an inside look into the community and the studnets have a chance to show off their artistic talents through a new medium.

Carribean Paradise Road:

A cultural sharing and mentoring program carried out through local Middle Schools to share Latino culture with students: participants used dance and music to show their customs and to promote diversity and tolerance.
