Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!

Sep 11 2012

CASA volunteers and youth joined us at Southwest Key this past Saturday to learn about Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. At our second annual celebration event, youth and volunteers were able to connect with their own cultural heritage or get to know a culture other than their own.
