Community

Outreach

We serve the Spanish Speaking community through a variety of programs and services aimed at improving quality of life through equitable access.

Community

Building

We work to create a welcoming community that supports all.

Our Mission

To broaden understanding and acceptance of diverse community groups by expanding one's knowledge of the Spanish language and culture. 

Our Story

Emporia Spanish Speakers was founded in October 2017 in order to help facilitate Spanish language learning. Since then, it has evolved into so much more!

 

Yes, our primary focus is still to expand our Spanish language skills. However, immersing ourselves in the Latinx culture of Emporia and the surrounding area, whether it be supporting celebrations like Empovía, sponsoring cultural art projects and performances, or coming together over food, has been an instrumental part of our group. We work with multiple local agencies to create a welcoming community that supports language inclusion, supports diverse groups, and increases access to information and opportunities for our Spanish-speaking community.
