Every year, #HispanicHeritageMonth is observed from September 15th to October 15th. It is an opportunity to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from SpainMexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. This week, on Instagram, we highlighted proud Hispanic AmeriCorps members, senior corps, and staff from City Year New York. Their stories are those of strength, pride, idealism, and resilience—all traits we are excited for them to bring to the students of our NYC public schools.

Below we have featured a few. Be sure to check out the rest on Instagram @cityyearny:

Also, corps members at I.S.126Q in Astoria, Queens helped students explore their heritage & have fun at the same time through activities during after school clubs!
