Much of the work of Padres happens through committees. Committees focus on particular needs within the Mundo Verde community or aspects of Mundo Verde’s mission.
Committee meetings are open to all. Please come to a Padres meeting or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join a committee.
