Raising Future Leaders
Every year, hundreds of U.S. high school students travel abroad to our schools in Guatemala by participating in our Student Service Learning Program. These young leaders experience first hand what life is like on the other side of the border and learn how they can play a role in solving our nations pressing problems.

Power of Play: Education beyond the Classrooms
Play is an important part of the learning experience. In most areas, children go to work before and after school with little time for play. While developing literacy skills is a cornerstone to our education, we believe giving our students a safe place to discover, imagine and explore is equally important.

Student Service Learning Program

Claudia spent 3 years traveling to Guatemala during her school break to build schools in 3 different communities. She dedicated herself to fundraising, a week of service and as a result, dedicated three schools to benefit hundreds of children.

“It was so amazing to be part of making just a small step towards something so much bigger. I think that we can almost learn more from the children and the community than they can learn from us!”
