AVENIDA LATINA forms a space where [email protected] youth from across Toronto meet to develop their skills as designers, photographers and writers. Through our magazine we hope to be informative, interactive and to guide under a non-discriminatory framework, which includes gender, race, status & class. Since our launch we have distributed thousands of copies of AVENIDA LATINA around Toronto.
Although AVENIDA LATINA is released quarterly, our goal is to support and maintain a forum of expression for our writers. Therefore, our website will be providing up to date articles written by our very own staff along with event postings happening across the city. We are also very committed to helping youth find employment and volunteer opportunities so we plan to direct you to various resources right here.
