In 2022, we embarked on an exciting journey by launching a small test program site in San Clemente to explore the potential for expansion. Fast forward to 2023, and we’re thrilled to share an update on our San Clemente program, which has exceeded our expectations and paved the way for a promising future.
One of the keys to the program’s success in San Clemente is the thriving community we’ve built. Our team on the ground, alongside a group of dedicated and passionate students, has truly made this program shine. The sense of belonging and camaraderie among participants has been so good, and we’ve witnessed our students’ growth and development.
At the heart of our program is a commitment to learn work and entrepreneurial skills through making and selling hand-made products. Our leaders and mentors have worked tirelessly to provide top-notch opportunities, and the results have been outstanding. We’ve seen students gain new skills, increase capacity, and gain confidence. Our students set high standards for themselves.
Our success in San Clemente would not have been possible without the unwavering dedication of our team members. From the program coordinators who meticulously plan each activity to the mentors who inspire and educate our students, every individual has played a vital role in our achievements. Their passion for our mission is truly commendable.
As we reflect on the success of our San Clemente program, we can’t help but feel excited about the future.
