El Puente Arts is the most comprehensive Latino Arts and Culture Center in Brooklyn. We provide preprofessional arts training, present local and international artists and produce numerous cultural events for the community.

The GLD is El Puente’s ten-year initiative to lead the Williamsburg Southside Community to exercise its right to self-determination. Together, as a united community, we will build on the victories of the past to secure our future as a model American neighborhood for health, education, culture, and the environment.

El Puente’s national network of Latino communities in Puerto Rico and in the states that are focused on promoting local and national strategies and policies, from a grassroots perspective, that respond to climate change in a social justice context. 

Celebrating 20 years, El Puente Academy for Peace & Justice is one of New York City's "A" rated public schools . Last year, virtually 100% of the 2012 senior class graduated. 

El Puente celebrates more than 30 years of community activism, cutting edge artwork and youth leadership in Williamsburg and Bushwick, Brooklyn.

El Puente Leadership Centers engage youth ages 6-21 in a holistic leadership development process that includes mentoring, academic enrichment, preprofessional arts training, sports, wellness, civic engagement, college preparation and internships.

Student artwork from El Puente Academy for Peace & Justice is currently on display at El Museo del Barrio. The exhibition features projects created during the 2013 Integrated Arts Project.
