About Creciendo Juntos 


Creciendo Juntos means “growing together" and began in 2005 as a community effort to support Latino families living in Charlottesville and Albemarle. We are a leading Latino advocate and provide year round workshops, forums, and resources for Latinos and Latino-serving organizations. We are directed by a volunteer board and partner broadly to help strengthen Latino families' connections within our community.


We are a group of individuals hoping to utilize our privilege as educators, attorneys, community

organizers and artists to make Charlottesville a better place for its Latinx community members.

  • We serve as an information hub for local Latinx community members and the many organizations interested in improving their services to them.

  • We provide access to direct services and community resources through workshops, community meetings and a comprehensive website.

  • We identify and responds to needs of local Latinx residents through a vibrant network of Latinx individuals and Latinx-serving organizations, including CJ's two working groups on Education and Mental Health.

Our Mission

The mission of Creciendo Juntos is to provide a platform for the voices, needs and wants of the Latinx community in Charlottesville and surrounding counties through education and leadership development. As agents of advocacy and equity, our volunteer network of individuals and organizations strive to strengthen Central Virginia by ensuring that all Latinx individuals have access to the opportunities they need to become resilient leaders in our community.
