The 2019-2020 Campeones calendar kicked off to an amazing start back in October, having enrolled 15 new outstanding candidates from the Punta de Mita and Higuera Blanca secondary schools, 10 students and 5 respectively. And since, it’s been a busy schedule for PEACE and Campeones, starting with the annual Day of the Dead celebration which took place November 1st. A traditional celebration where Campeones honored beloved members who’ve moved on by creating a traditional Day of the Dead shrine. Following this event was the 2019 Campeones Posada, an event that gathered PEACE staff, local members of the community, and other special guests, all together celebrating Christmas traditions.
As for upcoming 2020 events, Campeones are excited to start off this year, and began by restoring one of the classrooms at the local kindergarten in Corral del Risco. They bought and personally painted the entire classroom, creating an attractive and enjoyable environment for the youngest learners. These next month’s students will be presenting activities such like the 2nd Ceviche Fest, as a result of last year’s success. As well as the Entrepreneur Project which puts their critical thinking skills and creativity to work by allowing students to create a profitable product and test it in their local communities.
