In 1998 the Sisters of Mary opened their Guadalajara Boystown location as a secondary school program for young boys with specialized training in vocational courses. This school now provides a safe place to live and learn for 2,000 young boys where they are lovingly cared for and have the chance to enjoy a childhood free from the worries of poverty.

The boys at Guadalajara Boystown receive an education in a variety of subjects while they’re also given a safe place to live with regular nutritious meals. The boys also have lots of opportunities for play and fun during their time at school. They have a full program of hobbies and sports and have access to a range of onsite facilities which include a gymnasium and basketball courts.

The boys learn valuable and relevant skills giving them the best possible chance of employment once they graduate from school. This includes auto mechanics, accounting, culinary arts and more. The boys are taught the skills needed by local employers and the Sisters arrange a period of work experience in local companies. At the end of their time at school large local companies like Chevrolet, accept many of the boys into full-time work.

All of this is only possible through the generosity of people like you. Every child deserves a good start in life and with your help we can continue to make this a reality.
