Escuelita offers a variety of services at various local community events and schools.  The 'Escuelita Troupe' offers age appropriate Spanish Language and bilingual interactive puppet shows.  We also offer a variety of hands-on Latin American crafts for Festival participants. 
If you are hosting an event in your school or community, or know of one that we should be involved with please let us know.

We work hard to co-sponsor and support other local and some national organizations in an effort to share the Spanish language, music and culture with Pittsburgh families.
