CORAZON DE VIDA :: CAREER DAY 2017 AND MORE GRADUATES! Posted on 12 Oct 15:21

CAREER DAY: INSPIRING OUR KIDS TO PURSUE THEIR DREAMS

Our Career Day 2017 was held last September 29th in Tijuana and September 30th in Ensenada, in conjunction with the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California (UABC) which is the state university system with various campuses in Tijuana and Ensenada.

This program is open to all teens from jr. high to high school from the surrounding CDV supported orphanages, aimed at not only inspiring teens living in CDV orphanages to dream about a future career but give them the necessary support and tools to pursue it.

60 aspiring students in Tijuana and 30 in Ensenada, toured the campuses and learned about university life. We hope to provide scholarships to these future leaders, joining our current 50 university students and 10 graduates, all past orphanage residents who never thought they would attend upper lever education.

The focus of Career Day is to provide information on the various university programs and the careers associated with them, and include presentations from professors and students, interweaving their own life experiences, and struggles to achieve their own personal success.

Thank you to Apogee Electronics for your 10 year sponsorship of this important event!

Campbell Foundation, and countless others who are committed to not only providing the life-sustaining support funding for orphanages, but also funding for continuing education programs that will ensure each child and teen has the opportunity and support to build a future for themselves.

SUCCESS STORIES: FROM THE ORPHANAGE TO UNIVERSITY, AND BEYOND!

We are also proud to announce that we had 2 additional college graduates this past month! Josue form Culinary School, and Magaly with a degree in Education Technology. They each had to overcome so much to reach this milestone, however the love and support of their Corazon de Vida family carried them through the difficult times in their journey. Congratulations, you did it!
