The HOLA Foundation will initially focus on developing youth driven programs that will empower students to create venues to exhibit and promote Education through the Arts.
Working closely with USF Student organizations the HOLA Foundation launched its pilot outreach program at the annual Conga Caliente festival. This student lead consortium brought 7 USF student organizations together to plan and design this all day outreach and informational event. Over 20 university students volunteered at multiple booths to provide information on educational opportunities and programs to the community. They also developed artistic crafts, raised funds, did children face painting and performed Latin salsa dances for the attendees of the festival.
