Denise Nagel Youth Center

We are building a youth center with organized programs and activities that will provide a safe environment as well as improved health and skills development opportunities to enhance the lives of children within the poorest neighborhoods of Guaymas.

What is the average completion rate for students in Mexico?


Primary school attendance (grades 1-6)


Lower secondary attendance (grades 7-9)


Upper secondary attendance (grades 10-12)

"Outside of an occasional soccer ball, there are no sports, computers, games or clubs for socialization with peers. Our youth do not have a "safe space" which contributes to idleness, depression, hopelessness & community problems."

-Fr. Tommy King, OFM
