Pulsera Project Education Partners
As part of advancing our educational program and philosophy, we're grateful and proud to partner with the following educational partners:
Founded in 1917, the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) is the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive language-specific professional association in the United States. Their nearly 10,000 members are educators from PreK-12 through graduate school who endorse the mission to promote, develop, and advance the teaching of Spanish and Portuguese worldwide.
The Pulsera Project began partnering with AATSP in 2022 to advance our educational mission, partnering with them to benefit teachers, learners, and researchers in advancing best practices and service learning in classrooms around the world.
Vista’s singular focus is developing print and digital solutions that meet the needs of all language learners—those learning a new language, improving a second language, or perfecting their native language. Vista is committed to partnering with educators around the world to raise teaching and learning of languages, literacy, and culture to a higher level.
We are thrilled to be partnering with Vista to promote the project’s reach in classrooms as well as help cover the costs for teachers to travel to Central America and meet the artists & leaders that make our mission possible.
The National Spanish Exam (NSE) is an online, standardized assessment competition for Grades 6 -12, given voluntarily by about 4,000 middle and high school teachers throughout the United States, to measure performance (interpretive communication) and achievement of students who are studying Spanish as a second language. NSE is a program of AATSP.
Since 2021, NSE has supported The Pulsera Project by sponsoring a teacher to travel to Central America each summer, allowing teachers to connect directly with the artists and communities their volunteer efforts benefit.
The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica is a program of AATSP that works to recognizes high school achievement in Spanish and Portuguese and to promote interest in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies, with over 3,500 national and international chapters of the SHH worldwide.
As the largest Spanish honor society in the country, we are proud to sponsor the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica's chapter of the year award, which goes to chapters that not only prioritize language acquisition, but also service-learning both within and outside of the classroom.
The Sociedad Honoraria de Amistad (SHA) is a society for Pre-K through 9th grade students of Spanish or Portuguese started as a program of AATSP.
The Pulsera Project is proud to sponsor the chapter of the year award for the Sociedad Honoraria de Amistad, and looks forward to working to promote younger language learning in the years to come.
