Annual Youth Summit 2022

On Thursday, October 27, 2022, we had a successful event with a record attendance of over 500 youth from over 50 Bronx high schools. In this opportunity, our young Latinos had an approach with personalities and references from the cinema and from different industries where they shared their success stories to inspire our Latino leaders of tomorrow. It is important that our youth learn to trust who they are and remember that their future is created by what they do today.

Supporting the Bronx Community

The Bronx has come a long way in the last few decades. From previously being known for its high poverty and crime rates to a thriving borough home to 1,438,159 inhabitants, much have been done to bring this diverse, lively place to its full potential. Yet in spite of all the efforts being made in order to achieve this, our children still carry the stigma from this ghastly past and continue to be neglected in many areas that are essential to their optimal development.

Founded by Dr. Denise Nunez, the primary goal of Nino De La Caridad Foundation is to extend a helping hand to children of our Bronx Community. The foundation aims to provide a secure environment in which children are able to enhance their social skills as well as their academics. It is our mission to provide children with the skills and knowledge they need to lead a healthy and fulfilling future.

Our interns are predominantly from Fordham University, Monroe College, and Hostos Community College. Each of our programs provides internship and volunteering opportunities.
