Special thanks to Cvent for donating materials and preparing goodie bags for our 20th birthday celebration! This group of enthusiastic volunteers provided bags and party favors to gift to the 150 families enrolled in our Parent-Child Education Program. The bags were stuffed with sunglasses, stickers, snacks, and lots of love! Mil gracias to our friends at Cvent for going the extra mile to make our 20th birthday a celebratory success!

A big AVANCE thanks to the IBM JumpStart Program! These volunteers spent an afternoon preparing poster board for our Parent-Child Education Program participants to transform into graduation caps! We can’t wait to see more than 150 children cross the stage in an AVANCE graduation cap, handmade with love by their own mothers. Mil gracias to these hardworking volunteers for making our graduation ceremony extra special!
Over Spring Break, a team of General Motors employees spent their afternoon tracing and cutting out materials to support our educational toy making program. This group of IT professionals was so efficient, they finished their project in record time! These skillfully cut shapes will become part of a Rolling Can toy, one of the 17 educational toys our parents make each program year. Mil gracias to our friends at General Motors for promoting a lifelong love of learning through educational toy making!
