EBLO will celebrate its 34th Annual LatinoFest June 21st and 22nd.
While this event is our largest fundraising activity of the year, the proceeds of which benefit the children and families of our educational programs, it is also our largest cultural program of the year.
Join us to experience the incredible diversity of the many cultures of the Latino Community, and enjoy authentic foods, crafts, traditional folk performances, and all types of Latino music with our non-stop live entertainment.
Our Mission: Education Based Latino Outreach (EBLO) was established in 1980 for the purpose of improving the lives of Hispanic youth and their families through educational opportunities and cultural programs.
The Vision: "2014 marks the 34th anniversary of Education Based Latino Outreach (EBLO). In 1980 a small inspired group of community activists came together under the leadership of the late Jose Ruiz with the goal of finding a way to help the children of first generation Hispanics in Baltimore to reach their full educational potential. All of us who came together had experienced the reality of what it meant to receive a quality education. Some of the initial committee members had experienced discrimination as they struggled in schools that were completely unprepared to reach out to children with limited English proficiency (LEP). The stories of that initial founding group are only slightly different from the experience of the children that EBLO serves today. For more click here...
