Teatro V!da: (the other TV)
Leadership. Literacy. Love of Learning.
Co-founded by Magdalena Gomez and The Latino Breakfast Club
"Through this program, my daughter has learned many life long lessons...your training, care and compassion have truly changed her life for the better...she walks with her head held high and is ready to take on new things at school...your projects and efforts
are essential to our community..."
Sonia Jimenez, parent of Teatro V!da member
"...truly professional, emotional, and inspiring events. I can only imagine the profound impact that the experience must have on the participating teens and their families, when the effect on the audience is so strong!
