Latinos Working For The Future

These gatherings are hosted by Latinos Working for the Future, a Latino non-profit organization in Muskegon. Our purpose is to unify and organize the Latino community of the Greater Muskegon Area. We will strive to celebrate our culture, increase interest in our history, while preserving and honoring the Latino dialects of our Hispanic population. Our continuing goals will be to take an active interest in the educational needs of the children and adults in our community whether they are native or foreign born.

We want to hear from you on what you would like to see in our Muskegon community.
