Mission Statement

CENTRO HISPANO DE EAST TENNESSEE is a non-profit grassroots organization whose mission is to promote the empowerment and civic participation of the Hispanic community through education, advocacy and social services.

Description

CENTRO HISPANO DE EAST TENNESSEE is a non-profit grassroots organization whose mission is to promote the empowerment and civic participation of the Hispanic community through education, advocacy and social services. Centro Hispano is the first community resource center for Hispanics in East Tennessee; we strongly believe that education is essential to the progress, not only of the Hispanics living here, but of the community as a whole. Classes and programs will be available for anyone interested in learning something new or willing to share their knowledge and abilities.

We've been working in Knoxville since 2005; joining efforts with other local groups, we offered literacy classes, taught civic participation and art for kids in various churches.

This past year, by the collaboration of several local organizations and the hard work of the board members we were able to get our own building: 2455 Southerland Ave. Knoxville TN. 37919.

Centro Hispano will open its doors this 2011 with a long list of classes to encourage Hispanics and friends to continue developing their minds by learning and actively participating in their current society while preserving their heritage.
