PLEASE USE ROBERT AS A RESOURCE!

Schools
The From the Barrio Foundation is working with the Chicago Public School District and other schools around the country to implement From the Barrio to the Classroom, a dynamic two week curriculum/teacher’s guide that utilizes Robert’s story to help students reflect on their own lives and share their own stories. When children express who they are and where they come from, they realize what they stand for and become visible to their peers.  That visibility creates confidence. Confidence inspires students to make healthier choices.  Teachers and administrators interested in working with From the Barrio to the Classroom should contact us here.
