Meet Walter, One of Our Three Local Leaders

Sep 4, 2014

The Casa Chiri community is excited to welcome Walter Urbina, as one of our three local leaders who has joined the Casa team. Our Local Leaders will be investing in children from the Chirilagua community as well as gaining job experience through their part-time position as a Kids Club Assistant.


Here are some fun facts Walter would like to share about himself:


  • I was born and raised in El Salvador and arrived to the United States in 2009.


  • I started volunteering for Casa Chirilagua during summer camp in 2013. I never thought that I would be working with Casa Chirilagua as a local leader. Its a great opportunity and I’m excited to be part of this great organization.


  • Some of my favorite things to do are watching soccer and eating pupusas (Salvadorean food).


Please join us in welcoming Walter to the Casa Chiri family!
