The charity work done within communities( 5,000 food items for the local gospel mission), the partnerships and discussions with local schools, English as a second language volunteering(El Centro), The soccer recycling program "Share the Gear" ( helped River Oaks Club and New Latino Visions share soccer items to promote wellness by donating to a young team from Retalhuleu, Guatemala), Over a 1000 Christmas cards to our troops, yard sale and recycling in our communities, giving a local child a free soccer ball, socks, or soccer shoes. Many have valued the time spent with New Latino Visions and their associate. Personally, I have gained a greater understanding of my strengths and weaknesses. To truly represent the magnitude of commitment New Latino Visions and associates has and how greatly my life has been an influence both professionally and personally, I would need a motion picture and 90-120 min or more of your time. Therefore, to learn more about the #NewYouthVisions movement contact us or come check out New Latino Visions events or any of our associates events. #NewYouthVisions

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I have had the opportunity to volunteer and become an actual board member for New Latino Visions in the last 2 1/2 years. This organization has educated me not only on non-profit work but also different Hispanic cultures, soccer, event organizing, fundraising, organizational skills, leadership skills and the list goes on.
I have been directly involved with many events, classes, meetings, fundraisers for New Latino Visions to name a few:
Cinco de Mayo 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 1st Annual Hispanic/African American Cultural Event, 1st Annual Day of the Homeless in partnership with other nationwaide Hispanic groups, tejano fundraising dances, raffles etc........Just to name a few again.
New Latino Visions is a great non-profit in the mentoring piece. New Latino Visions takes every opportunity to help out local schools and colleges to name a few: Edison Magnet school (Halloween & Green project in process), El Sol elementary school (Boxtops for Education), Phoenix High School (Mentors classes & possible Cinco de Mayo), Washington Writers Academy (Afterschool programs since 2005 to 2010) and the list goes on. Not only is our Mission focusing on the Michigan YOUTH but also focusing on the whole community.
The organization is restructing and obtaining dedicated, passionate and committed board members and all are getting their hands wet in all areas of the organization and understanding how to communicate and respect each other and the community. We have had some ups and downs but are working hard to keep making a difference in the whole State of Michigan. Additional information on New Latino Visions Facebook that shares everything we have accomplished throughout the last few years. Proud to be a part of this organization!
