Corazon Puro Inc. (Bronx, NY)
LATINOS POR LA VIDA/ CORAZON PURO JOB DESCRIPTION
Event Coordinator of Latinos por la Vida (LXV) and Corazon Puro (CP)
Corazo n Puro (CP)
Corazo n Puro started in 2008 as a sacramental-based formation/preparation for inner city and at risk youth and young adults. It is based in the South Bronx and strives to bring dynamic teachings in English and Spanish. In light of the incredible dearth of relevant resources geared toward our given demographic–particularly addressing hispanic culture and language, Corazo n Puro strives to bridge this gap. CP’s programming is aimed at bringing about a Culture of Life targeting some of the core issues in the areas of dignity, sexuality, mission and marriage. We do this through our monthly meetings and lectures, retreats, and missions in the local, national, and international level. In addition, CP leads and collaborates in other initiatives and events.
Latinos por la Vida (LXV)
LXV is a coalition of organizations that intent on responding to the urgent need to unify and mobilize latinos in the pro-life movement. Our aim is to inform and involve Latinos while shaping new leaders in the pro-life movement. We are a people of family and culture, it is time to protect those values!
The Event coordinator will help develop and implement the mission of Corazo n Puro by working with the Program Director, the Corazon Puro committees and the Latinos por la Vida Advisory committee in organizing special events (Namely the LXV conference and the CP Gala)
