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.

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 22 years, El Puente Academy for Peace & Justice is one of New York City's "A" rated public schools. 

On October 9th, El Puente celebrated 32 years of innovative arts & culture programming, youth development centers & social justice activism at our first ever benefit. We'd like to thank all of our sponsors, guests & supporters and we look forward to next year's celebration!

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.

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.

The Global Justice Institute (GJI) is a comprehensive training, development, and certification program that engages El Puente staff and Fellows from our local, national, and international networks.
