In Fall of 2016, Circo de los Niños de San Pancho celebrates the first young student who will pursue continued professional training after finishing his 5 years as a participant and 1 year as assistant teacher in the project.Twenty year old Jose Luis Herreras, or "Pato" as we know him auditioned to enter at the Diplomado de Cirko de Mente (Cuernavaca) a 2-year Certificate Program for Circus Arts. After a rigorous audition and selection process, he has been accepted and will begin his career in Circus Arts (while also pursuing a degree in Sports Education). Circo de los Niños believes these opportunities are unique, especially for our young students who come from local families with little resources and who do not benefit from the privilege of an upbringing that encourages Arts Education as an option. We strongly believe that creating a supportive network is valuable at this stage of a young persons personal and professional development.
By donating to the Dream Catchers Fund, you are also supporting opportunities for continued professional training such as the case of our first graduate ¨Pato¨. We will raise $3000 pesos per month towards this Grant for his 2016-2017 Certificate Program at Cirko de Mente. For more information about this professional school, check their site www.cirkodemente.com.mx
It is our philosophy that students who receive our support will, in return,give back to Circo de los Niños in the form of "social retribution" by volunteering their time and talents to their community. In the future, we envision our young students as leaders and role that inspire young children to reach their dreams through dedication and hard work.
To make a contribution towards a Grant for Professional Training, you may donate to the Dream Catchers Fund. Circo de los Niños appreciates your support.
