Celebrating its tenth year at the Coast Guard Academy, Compañeros is a club where cadets, faculty, and staff members with an interest in Latino culture and traditions can come together for fun, mutual support and service to the community. The current community service project is helping at El Centro de la Comunidad, in downtown New London. This non-profit organization helps recent Latino immigrants assimilate to life in the United States. Other club activities include taking salsa dance classes, hosting a Spanish Table twice a month during lunch where members can practice their Spanish, and participation in both USCGA's Eclipse Diversity Week as well as the annual conference of the Association of Naval Service Officers’ (ANSO). Finally, the Compañeros Club also organizes periodic guest lectures and trips to other colleges to meet with members of other fellow Latino campus organizations.
