This past Wednesday, Our soccer program students were invited to attend the soccer match between the Mexican national team and the Venezuelan national team at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta!
AT&T Impact was gracious enough to allow 13 of our soccer program participants to tour the stadium, receive supporter merchandise and to be featured during the half-time show!

Another wonderful Day at Los Niños Primero!
Today we had Snapology conduct their first session with our 5 year olds!
Snapology is the premier partner for STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math), offering year-round programs in schools, community facilities, homes and in our Discovery Centers (select locations only). Kids have so much fun in their classes and camp activities that they don’t even realize they’re learning STEM / STEAM concepts!

Let's have a rousing round of applause for the actors, teachers, parents and students who collaborated in a series of family storytelling workshops! Los Niños Primero thanks our partners, the Alliance Theatre and Literacy For All, for their creative approach to improving family literacy.
The families worked with the actors to tell and re-tell stories as an ensemble, increasing literacy skills and developing a love for reading and storytelling.
Through storytelling workshops, art-making, music-making and performance, the Los Niños Primero community has strengthend our connection to the remarkable Alliance Theatre while improving the children and parents' literacy skills.
Literacy for All is a donor-advised fund of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta and provided grant funding for this multi-generational literacy program.
Bravo, one and all!

This past Saturday April 27th, parent participants graduated from our Fostering Family Leaders Program in collaboration with United Way! Los Niños Primero parents came to 10 sessions where their leadership skills were highlighted and developed! United Way was once again our program partner for our second year. Participants worked on honing their abilities as parents, community members, and global citizens!
For their last meeting, parents gave group presentations on two topics they had selected and researched! The issues they tacked were those that they believed to be affecting their own communities. Groups presented background information on the topics and then gave suggestions on what could be done!
This Saturday April 27th, Los Niños Primero families participated in Volunteer for a Better Sandy Springs! Parents volunteered at Lake Forest Elementary School where they assisted in a clean up effort!
