El Circulo Juvenil orgulloso de ser parte de esto

As you may know, El Circulo Outreach program is a volunteer-based community service project. Every semester faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as community members contribute hundreds of volunteer hours to help Spanish-speaking children in the Pittsburgh area sustain and develop their linguistic and cultural skills, and to familiarize them with the use of technology.
