March Mission Trip a Success!
Our latest group of exceptional volunteers has just returned from Colombia in what was a great experience for us, the kids and the volunteers themselves. Many of our March volunteers were first-timers with Emiliani and some have been with our family for years. Everyone will be coming back, we have no doubt of that.
Thank you so much to everyone who made the sacrifice and came down to join us. The children and the staff were tremendously positively impacted by your stay. What a great group of warm hearts! Thank you!
2018 Open Mission Trip Dates
We still have plenty of openings if you’d like to join us for a Mission Trip to Colombia. Open trip dates are as follows:
May 26 to June 3, 2018
July 28 to August 5, 2018
All of our Mission Trips offer you the opportunity to work with our kids, participate in the daily operation of the home, roll up your sleeves and work at our new home construction site, and to just have some fun with the children while experiencing the beautiful country of Colombia by taking them to local events, festivals and activities. It’s an opportunity to really make a difference in the lives of children who need your help while at the same time making a positive impact on your own life. For more information about our trips and to register for an upcoming Mission Trip, please visit our Mission Trips page or email us at [email protected].
Emiliani College Preparation has Begun
The Emiliani Project is a family. Like a family, our commitment to our kids extends beyond the teenage years and the need for youth formation. As our kids get older, our mission is to provide them with a pathway to success in life. Education is key to that success, and so we are committed to supporting our kids beyond their highschool years and into college.
Thanks to the Bonnie Jean Foundation we have begun a private college preparation tutoring program that will prepare our kids for their government funding assistance and college admissions exams beginning in the 9th grade and continuing into the final days of their senior year. The program will provide private tutoring in subjects where students need special attention, exam taking strategies to improve test-taking performance and practice exams every year of highschool. These kids will be as prepared as we can make them to go get those scholarships and get into the local universities.
We have appointed a new Emiliani Education Director who will be monitoring student progress through a variety of metrics in order to improve the delivery of the tutoring services. If you’re interested in participating in the program and/or would like to learn more about sponsoring our education program for 2019, please Contact Us. Every child deserves a dream!
