HOLA CAROLINA

Empowering the Next
Generation of Leaders

Hola Carolina is a grassroots organization shaping the future of the Latino community, while still preserving our culture and honoring our heritage.

Our vision is for immigrant communities and people of color to live in a just, multiracial society, free from oppression and exploitation, in which we can thrive with power and purpose.

Lets Build Something Amazing

Working in communities with the most need, we build healthy environments and help empower the Latino community to create lasting change that continues for generations. Our programs focus on health education, empowerment and communications to provide our community a path to success and a chance to envision a future we never thought possible.

We believe that every culture has a history and tradition to honor. This common thread allows us to communicate across cultures in a universal language and understand one another in a different way.

MOVEMENTS MOVE MOUNTAINS

We envision a world where movements have transformed power and privilege for a few into equity and equality for all.

Why healthy behaviors?

The Latino community often has greater health problems and are more likely to suffer from preventable diseases because of lack of access to proper treatment. Health issues are often the main factor plunging families further into poverty.

Our programs teach healthy behaviors, including good hygiene and proper nutrition, and provide access to health care and dental clinics at our community events and life-changing community centers.

Why empowerment?

The story of Latinos in our community is a long one, filled with tradition, innovation and inspiration. Latinos, of course, are not homogenous. Made up of different races and nationalities, and with vastly different histories. One thing Latinos have in common is the challenges we face.

Our programs foster social responsibility through leadership, life skills, entrepreneurship and employment-training workshops, so members of our community are empowered to make an impact in their communities.

Why communications?

Hola Carolina fills the gap in news information, combats misinformation and improves communication for the Spanish-speaking community.

Our work helps our community understand the presence, contributions and challenges of Latino families in the Carolinas. Our diverse outreach and public awareness programs inform, educate, enlighten and enrich the Spanish-speaking community.

COVID Collaborative

Hola Carolina and the COVID Collaborative are leading a massive communications effort to educate the Latino community and build confidence around the COVID-19 vaccines. We have created several toolkits to help community leaders share information with the public.
