What We Do

At Presencia we start with kids at a young age, teaching them how to lead with love by being a present example.

We have four main values we aim to grow in our children, youth, leaders and volunteers at Presencia:

 

kindness - seeking the wellbeing of others, and showing love through our actions

generosity - sharing what we have and giving what we do not need

respect - recognizing the good, the beauty, and the dignity that exists in each other

responsibility - doing what we say we will do, and owning our actions

 

Our leaders teach these values through:

 

  • Neighborhood Tutoring - homework help, reading practice, healthy meals, and field trips for about 50 kids in our neighborhood

  •  Youth Mentoring- college prep, career development, service opportunities, monthly neighborhood clean-ups, and CREATE Presencia Studio days

  • Leadership Development & Job Opportunities- sales and retail experience through our Presencia pop-up shops, and childhood development and education experience through our tutoring director positions

                                 

About our Pop-up Shops:

The selling of our Presencia goods provide paid work for our neighborhood youth, job training skills, and an opportunity for us to be a reference for our youth when they move on to bigger and better things! They also help us get the word out about what we do and how people can join us! Many of our items are hand made in house at our CREATE Presencia studio days.
