Caminos Del Arte, CDA is a small grass roots east Salinas cultural nonprofit founded in March of 1998 to help families and especially young people counter the growing problems of gang, drugs and family dysfunction in East Salinas largely marginalized emigrant Mexican farm worker community.

The organization provides mariachi instruction to foster mentoring relationships, and leadership development opportunities for our youth. It is our purpose with this program to fill cultural voids within competing cultures and instill cultural pride and a sense of belonging to assist youth with daily challenges.

It is the mission of Caminos Del Arte to educate our youth, through mentoring, counseling, performance, and cultural programs. We leverage existing networks and resources to help youths reach their highest potential, and instill in them leadership skills that will last a lifetime
