This year the AP Spanish students will be participating in the “Pulsera Project,” an organization that helps the poverty-stricken people from Nicaragua and Guatemala. This organization offers employment to about 200 artists from Nicaragua and Guatemala who create hand-woven pulseras (bracelets). The pulseras are sent out to schools around the U.S. who are willing to participate and then distributed to students so they can be sold. The money raised from these pulseras funds education programs, workers rights, housing programs and more.

“The pulsera project gives us a chance to connect with and give back to communities in Latin America,” senior Itzel Valenzuela said.

Students are given a bag filled with pulseras with the goal of selling them all. Each pulsera is filled with colors and unique patterns.

Pulseras sell will be going on for two weeks. All pulseras are $5.

Each pulsera contains a small tag with a picture of the person who made the bracelet.
