The Rhythms of My Community connects children from the United States and Costa Rica with the power of music, dance, reading and writing, through the use of a series of workshops in schools, educational digital materials and a bilingual children’s book.

This project is the result of an educational alliance between Carretica Cuentera, from Costa Rica, and ComMotion - Community in Motion, from the United States, through the meeting of both organizations in the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) program: an exchange sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U. S. Department of State of the United States of America.
