The Guatemala club at Oakland Catholic is for students who are selected by the Spanish program to participate in a support program for two organizations in Patzun, Guatemala. The organizations are called Centro de Nutritional y Hogar de los Ninos, a local orphanage and San Bernardino, the local Catholic school.
The students help during the year to fundraise money for scholarships for the children of the orphanage to attend the local Catholic school.
The current Guatemala Club members go once a year on a week long mission trip. They assist as teachers in the school.
Our alumni of the Guatemala Club are still very involved with their mission work. They developed a missionary teacher program and continue to visit, volunteer, and teach at San Bernardino. Ms. Donahue stays connected with our alumnae there and supports them as needed.
