October 2014 | La Escuelita del Ritmo | Music & Art Scholarships

During the month of October, Cambio Creativo partner and friend, La Escuela del Ritmo, offered a series of music, art, and folkloric dance scholarships to students participating in the Jovenes Luchadores youth group. A little over 20 students were able to take advantage of these free classes, which offered some the chance to explore their interests and others the opportunity to improve their technique and skills. Since Portobelo— where La Escuela del Ritmo is located— is about an hour away from Coco Solo, Cambio Creativo provided the students with the opportunity to stay in Portobelo throughout their scholarship experience. Cambio Creativo is heartened by La Escuelita del Ritmo’s generosity in creating a unique and unforgettable experience for our Coco Solo youth. The students who participated already say they want to go back for more classes, and those who weren’t able to attend are asking to participate next year. We hope to turn this experience into a yearly event the students can look forward to and prepare for.
