A Safe Space for our People.

El Maestro's mission is to preserve the identity, history and cultural legacies of the Puerto Rican community for our future generations and society at large. Since its foundation, the center has developed a series of events and activities focused on traditional and contemporary Puerto Rican cultural expressions such as music, dance, literature and sport.

Founded in 2003 by noted author, educator, organizer, activist, family man, ex-gangster and Independentista Fernando 'Ponce' Laspina, El Maestro Inc. embraces its role as a central hub for the Puerto Rican diaspora.
