Our Mission and Focus


Our mission is to build more confident and well-educated young adults as the hope for Mexico's future.  We believe that continuing education is essential to the future of a peaceful world.  We have identified the following objectives to further this mission.

1.  Provide new  scholarships each year for strong academic students who could not otherwise attend a university, as identified through a rigorous selection process.

2.  Identify new local or foreign educational supporters to accomplish the mission of 'Club Las Amigas', which is providing educational opportunities as a benefit to San Felipe students, their families, and our community.
