National Volunteer Week is April 18-24, 2021!!!

To recognize this special time, we at El Centro de la Raza would like to take a moment to thank and recognize our volunteers. Volunteers assist with a variety of essential tasks that help our agency run smoothly, ranging from distributing food and tutoring to making masks, providing translation services, special event assistance and more. Our organization would be unable to provide 43 programs and services to the community without them!

During the first seven years of its existence, El Centro de la Raza was completely volunteer-run. Volunteerism was at the heart of our mission from the very beginning, and our success over the past 48+ years reminds us that we would not be where we are today without their generous support. On behalf of everyone at El Centro de la Raza, we are sending mil gracias to our volunteers!
