Interactive Cultural Tours

Join us for a little latin culture whether it be cooking, art or dance!  We provide an interactive cultural experience to private groups such as schools, organizations, after school programs, daycare centers, etc.  

We can offer up to a four hour tour that that allows youth and attendees to learn about SQACC's mission and what we do. They will work with our Art Coordinator on a latin inspired art project and then head into the kitchen to make their own lunch! We can also offer dance classes, a visit to our bees, that produce our "Honey from the Hood" and more.
