WHAT IS IT?
As part of our Leadership cohort, we have started collecting stories of community members to identify values that can help us build a more unified community.
The end goal of the project is to write a children's book that can be used by community members to talk to their children about values from their home countries, and values of our community here in the States.
Art is happening here!
From the second floor of our center, to the grassy land of the Iron Playground, there is always a seat waiting for you! Explore our events currently happening in Reading.
A LIBRARY OF LIVING STORIES
The project examines the lives of the people who dedicate their talents and time to Barrio. The stories reveal the personal and professional evolution of our members and capture the real-time metamorphosis of the community at large.
Leadership in development
Explore three ways we are creating leaders:
Barrio Alegria’s “Avanza!” Program is promoting reading with a focus on Spanish only speaking families.
This program stands for Barrio Alegria Incursion of Learning and Education and it provides opportunities for young leaders to visit organizations from neighboring cities to learn their history, best practices and vision for the future.
Barrio does civic and social engagement of our community through the arts, empowering and building future leadership."
