To inform, educate and convoke for action the Hispanic communities in our geographical areas in areas that will help them achieve a better life.
To educate, inform and promote actions of the Spanish speaking community of North and South Carolina in areas that will help the community to have a better life. Our goal is to provide them knowledge of their rights and duties as members of their respective general communities in which they live in the USA, as well as the knowledge (civic, financial, medical, etc) they need to become better productive and contributing members of such communities.
The community we serve
Those members of the community with the greatest need that we define as those having a limited knowledge of the English language and the working low income segment of our community.
What we do
Por Una Vida Mejor
Por Una Vida Mejor (PUVM) is a program that seeks to promote equal opportunities in access to education for young Latinos in the Piedmont-Triad region, in North Carolina, who do not have legal status. .
Through this program, which is funded and supported by Wells Fargo, students can apply for a scholarship to help fund their higher education at a state university or community college.
