Special Projects

America Developing Smiles of Puerto Rico also develops different initiatives searching for support from private, governmental, and nonprofit organizations to raise funds, help our extracurricular educational program and strengthen our organization’s mission with co-operative alliances and workshops.

Supporting the Arts

We’ve always supported art initiatives because studies have shown that practicing art from an early age benefits a child’s learning and cognitive process. It helps their writing, reading, and general understanding. As a result, we’ve established “Arts and Smiles,” our very own prevention and early intervention program for young children and children who are at risk, so that we can prevent future juvenile delinquency and other social problems of our society.


The construction project for Colegio María Auxiliadora’s new basketball court rooftop promotes a fun and healthy environment for the children. It also helps promote a better community and school integration with preventive politics and social control. 

Join our efforts in promoting fun educational projects and activities that encourage even more recreational habits in the community, like teaching healthy and appeasing practices that increase every individual’s social and cultural growth.
