Busch Student Center, 256
Angie Guzman is a founder of a non profit organization called "Queretaro Institute for the Empowerment of Children," which is a bilingual school that will be opening next year in Mexico. The mission of the organization is to create schools that cater to students of all backgrounds: "Through creative partnerships and high-quality programs, we instill in our students a desire for lifelong learning. Our programs nurture individual talents and skills by promoting critical thinking and problem-solving, and teach students the academic and social skills needed to leave their mark in an ever-changing, global society." In this presentation Angie will give an overview of her project, speak of the history of Queretaro, explain problems encountered, and provide opportunities for students to get involved.
