Connecting Our Communities through Dialogue and Service!
TOGETHER, we can create a positive social change more quickly!
La Convivencia strives to bring diverse groups of people together to get to know one another while serving the greater good of their community. Service, in all faiths, religions, and cultural traditions, is a shared value and is deeply prioritized. Community Service is more than helping others. It is connecting, reaching, and linking arms. Service strengthens one’s community, as it proves loyalty, dedication, and a deep care for the people and environment that surround us. Service expands our breadth of knowledge; it pushes us to see beyond our small bubbles to understand the greater schemes of our community. Furthermore, service supports the needs of those that are underserved and marginalized by society. La Convivencia sees this expansion of compassion and understanding as the true meaning of peaceful connection. La Convivencia’s focus on service projects also enforces community building in a way that is both humbling and exciting for future growth.
