Mariposas Spanish is proud to be deeply involved in our community both directly through our program and through supporting our schools. Over the last 23 years we have given, partnered, and donated to countless programs and non-profits. Gracias a todos for allowing us to participate in Austin and Latino communities in the ways we know best!
Mariposas frequently donates materials, swag, and supplementary music to affiliated schools for fundraisers. In the 2018-2019 school year we supported Hyde Park Montessori and Covenant Presbyterian Preschool, and Austin Montessori School in their yearly silent auction.
Donated items are given at the discretion of Mariposas staff. To apply for a Mariposas donation please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mariposas collaborates with Dear Future in their “pen pal” program that connects our students with students in rural villages of Peru. This allows them to learn about each other and expand their minds.
Dear Future was formed to help children in extreme poverty attain quality and equitable education. The organization aids schools in Peru with materials and basic needs; which can be hard to achieve in certain areas.
The Helping Hands Project
As part of Mariposas’ vision to give back to our community, Mariposas Spanish School teachers volunteered at Helping Hand Home offering Spanish classes to the children a few times a month. By doing so, we wanted to spread interest in our language and culture in hopes that this knowledge makes a difference in their lives.
