The MISSION of Pequeñas Ligas Hispanas de New Haven, Inc. is to blend the athletic development of children with their academic, artistic, cultural and social growth.
Our needs are: – Diversified and deepened funding base, – Institutionalization of long-standing programs, – Sustaining Administrative/Program Space.
Since 1992, Pequeñas
Ligas has provided athletic instructional programs that foster short and long
term development of New Haven boys and girls in a multitude of sports,
including: tennis, volleyball, table tennis, basketball, track & field
(sprints, middle distances, high jump, long jump, shotput, discus, javelin,
minijav, multi-events), road racing, cross country, racewalking, soccer, speedskating,
triathlon (swim/bike/run), duathlon (run/bike/run), squash, badminton,
goodminton, bowling, swimming, rowing, sailing (referral), golf, canoeing,
softball, baseball, grass tennis, beach tennis, world's greatest athlete
competition (15 sports in 1 day), and invented/hybrid sports. Pequeñas Ligas also places students at
athletic clinics and summer camps at colleges, advocates on behalf of students,
feeds and supports students competing in middle and high school and collegiate
athletics, and develops coaches amongst senior students.
Pequeñas Ligas seeks
to develop well-rounded persons by making accessible opportunities for
immersion in various art forms. Pequeñas Ligas has provided community arts programs since 1993, and is a 1994 graduate of the Connecticut Commission on the Arts’ Inner City Cultural Development Program. Program areas have included: guitar, piano, voice, violin, book publishing,
museum visits, community open stages, flute, painting and drawing, creative
writing, poetry, theater, drumming, Bomba dance, Brazilian music and dance,
concerts and music workshops, baton-twirling, crafts, filmmaking, film fests,
photography, songwriting/composition, and "days of sports and arts". Since 2011, and with the support of the Connecticut Office of the Arts, we have held our MUSA (MUsicians/Songwriters/Artists) SERIES, which seeks to: Promote and celebrate Puerto Rican and Latin American culture, and Develop, nurture and support a creative community of artists of all ages. In addition, New Haven is an outstanding arts center and we draw upon the great
arts resources in the city to serve as an intermediary for families by: making
referrals for music and visual arts instruction (at Neighborhood Music School and
Creative Arts Workshop); and sharing information on festivals, concerts, plays
and visual arts events (such as the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, Yale
School of Music concerts, New Haven Open Studios).
promotes education as the key to self-sufficiency and a productive life, and
provides academic supports, strategies and pathways for students to pursue and
remain in post-secondary education. Our DE CAMINO A LA UNIVERSIDAD programming
assists students and parents in their efforts to plan for and apply to colleges
as well-rounded candidates for admission, and to attend and graduate from a
college or university as multi-faceted students that are assets to their
schools' student bodies and, upon graduation, to their communities.
Indirect Public Support HelpIndirect public support represents revenue received through solicitation campaigns. This includes funding United Way and other federated fundraising organizations, but does not include donor designated contributions.
Earned Revenue HelpEarned revenue represents income generated in direct exchange for a product or service.Earned income includes income from government contracts.
For fiscal years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013 we filed IRS Form 990-N, which is for organizations which average less than $50,000 in yearly revenue over the last three fiscal years. Revenue for each of the last five fiscal years was: 2011 - $49,793 (corrected), 2012 - $27,545.13, 2013 - $60,336.73, 2014 - $75,129.98, 2015 - $58,022.20. Due to the smallness of our budget, an audit was unaffordable and spending the cost of an audit would have made it impossible to serve New Haven’s children and families.
When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
