The Avenues community engagement program encourages students to “explore beyond their ‘bubbles,’ whether socio-economic, cultural or linguistic.” In keeping with this goal, ninth and tenth graders interviewed some of our Spanish-speaking neighbors at the Hudson Guild Senior Center as part of a monologue project. Everyone had such a good time that the students decided to throw a salsa party and invite their new friends.

In the video below, watch the community come together to reflect on the neighborhood’s history and to celebrate newfound friendship. Learn more about our partner Hudson Guild here.
