There’s No Place Like Home

It feels like a dream come true—a former school campus in Guatemala transformed into an Education Center that will serve as our new home base for in-country operations for generations to come. Thanks to the generosity of our anonymous benefactor—and the overwhelming support from all of you who have stepped up to sponsor spaces in the new center—we’ve been hard at work ever since the initial purchase. And now, it’s allllllmost ready! Move-in day isn’t set exactly, but it’s so close we can taste it!

If we click our heels three times, does that mean we can move in faster?

We’ve already been showing off our new digs on recent tours. It’s the perfect place for tour participants to visit and interact with scholarship students—and see the amazing things we’ve been able to accomplish thanks to CoEd supporters.

What better way to get to know each other than by jumping rope together?

Our beneficiaries have already gotten a chance to attend programming activities at the new center. On September 24, 80 high-schoolers in our Scholarship and Youth Development Program packed into the brand new conference room for a workshop on professional skills. They got to see a mock interview, learn about thinking preferences, and hear from a panel of business professionals.

Our new conference room—just the right size for a Scholarship and Youth Development Program workshop!

As we gear up to move in over the coming months, we look forward to welcoming all of you to the official inauguration, scheduled to take place during our February 2017 tours. So reserve your spot today—we can’t wait to see you there!
