We're pleased to announce the launch of our brand new website!

The road to amalgamation has been a long one, but with the launch of the new Casa - Pueblito website we can finally say we're at the end. We're very excited to share this new site with you; it clearly represents our shared mission, vision and values. You can now find us at www.casapueblito.org. We hope you'll take a look and let us know what you think!

As always, feel free to contact us by email at info@casapueblito.org or by phone at 416-642-5781

Thank you for your continued support through this transition,

Katie Daly
Executive Director, Casa - Pueblito

Working alongside Casa - Pueblito was an amazing experience because I value their vision and what they stand for. What I like the most about Casa - Pueblito's mission is their aim to support the growth of children and youth in the Americas. I am glad to have been a part of the team to promote and encourage a diverse movement and raise awareness throughout various social media platforms and interact with many others who share the same passion as I do for sustainability and Casa - Pueblito's vision."

June 26th to the 29th, 10 youth participated in our first V4C Leadership Camp, which was held at the Ontario Education Leadership Centre (OELC) in Longford Mills, ON. Here, youth participated in a number of interactive workshops aimed at developing their leadership skills so that they will feel confident in their abilities to champion for diversity and inclusivity in our schools and in our communities. Throughout the weekend, youth were encouraged to think about issues affecting Latinx-Hispanic youth in our schools and their roles as leaders in our community. When not hard at work, youth were taking in the sights and sounds of Lake Couchiching and participated in a number of fun and team-building activities, such as swimming, the Amazing Race, and even competed as Team Hulk in the OELC Olympics.

Congratulations to these amazing Youth Change-Makers! To view photos from the camp, visit our Facebook page here.  For more information and to get involved with Voices for Change, please contact us at info@casapueblito.org

Revisiting the Nicaraguan Revolution

Opening night of our second annual exhibit, Revisiting the Nicaraguan Revolution, was a great success! On June 24th, approximately 80 people joined us at Vtape to join in the commemoration of the 36th anniversary of the revolution and to view our collection of original, official posters published and distributed during Nicaragua's revolutionary period in the 1980s.  With us were musical guests Mery Perez and Erez Sussman, who wowed guests with their take on popular Nicaraguan folk songs; and Roberto Martin read the riveting “To Roosevelt” by Nicaraguan poet Ruben Darío. Thank you to everyone who came out and joined us on opening night! Click here to view photos of opening night.

If you missed opening night, you can still catch the exhibit until July 28th. Vtape is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm, and is located at 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 452.
You can also view our online exhibit and listen to our podcast, in both English and Spanish:
