JUNTOS Impact

Help us make an international impact! All ticket sales for Celebración JUNTOS will directly benefit JUNTOS Collective’s international educational dance program, JUNTOSAbroad 2022: Guatemala, as well as support our research and development of unique and accessible hybrid programs programming using the best qualities of our Virtual, Local, and Abroad programs. Hybrid programming allows us to use the unique benefits of each of our programs to elevate the impact and availability of our offerings, creating the largest impact possible for our global community!

JUNTOS Collective is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that uses dance to develop leadership and community building in underserved areas. JUNTOS works with university volunteers, providing dance workshops and offering dance performances in Boston, New York, San Francisco and internationally in Guatemala, Mexico, and Nicaragua. We collaborate with organizations such as orphanages, public hospitals, retirement homes, centers for HIV+ children, homeless shelters, and more.
