Our 2011/12 Scholarship Students

A total of 36 students were selected to receive scholarships from Los Amigos for the 2011/12 school year. They were selected from the 89 individuals who applied. All of these young people have committed to doing volunteer work on various community projects.

In addition to providing financial support for them to study at CONALEP next year, Los Amigos is providing leadership development training to these community leaders of tomorrow. They are involved in "Learning for Life," a nine month program provided under a Rotary Matching Grant from Kalispell, Montana, the Jaltemba Bay Rotary Club and the Rotary Foundation.

The "Learning for Life" project occurs in 3 phases, each lasting 3 months. The first phase is Self Leadership and is designed to help build personal skills. The second focuses on Team Work to build basic team skills and the third phase (Leading Others) focuses on creating and building specific projects.

The substantial expansion of the Los Amigos Scholarship program was made possible through the generous support of the individuals who stepped forward at Fiesta 2011 to each support one additional student. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the generosity of Donna Taylor, Louise Graham,  Dave Majewski, John Potwin, Joan Hagar, Joan King, Dean and Maureen Bigelow, Susan Cobb, Lin Chimes, Linda Fraser, Mark of Mark’s Bar & Grill in Bucerias, Bob Tripp, Eddie Dominguez, Karen Martin, Tom Plattenberger, David Thompson, Maxine & John Zuerbrigg, Roger Ulliac of Bold Development, David and Maruca Dinsmore, Ken Snyder & Mary Alice Ranta, Eric Petsinger and an anonymous donor from Alberta.

In January, 2009, Los Amigos approved a motion to establish the Los Amigos Scholarship Fund to finance six CONALEP/Prepatoria students for a full year's tuition and supplies at a total cost of 18,000 pesos per year. An additional ten scholarships were provided for the 2010/11 school year.

In support of the objective of the Los Amigos de Jaltemba Scholarship Program, the mission is to encourage students to participate in local activities, to develop community leaders, to provide educational support to local young people and to encourage young students to participate in the Los Amigos de Jaltemba organization.
