Chicago’s All Spanish Latino Cultural Program For Kids

This is the inaugural year for the Latino Cultural Academy. We provide a cultural program focused on helping children develop an understanding of what it means to be Latino in a personally relevant way. Our approach focuses on creating a fun and engaging environment where children feel safe acquiring and retaining the Spanish language, as well as gaining an appreciation for the similarities and differences amongst the various Latino cultures. Our goal is to assist in the preservation of the Latino identity, culture and language in young children by sharing rich cultural traditions.  The Latino Cultural Academy is in residence at UIC’s Latino Cultural Center.
