Testimonials

“Volunteering at Salsa on St.Clair was a great experience and I am truly happy that I decided to participated. I met some amazing people and had the chance to work along side professionals that were helpful and supportive. The staff made sure that all volunteers were well taken care of and most importantly having fun! I came into this experience without knowing what to expect, and now I can honestly say that it is a great time and an experience like no other. Most importantly, I will definitely make sure to return for the following years to come.”

“I had a wonderful summer by working with TLN, I’ve enjoyed every moment at, Ontario Place , Salsa on St Clair, and Latinfest. I also had the opportunity to watch a training of the Real Madrid soccer team. That was amazing! What I liked the most was working with a good co-operative team in every event. THANKS A LOT!”
– Adriany M, 2009.
