NEW CAREERS - A QUICK LOOK
April, Vol.13, 2021
Greetings!
Happy Easter, Passover and spring renewal! Warm greetings to all during this season of rebirth and your launching forward with new life! Springtime is a powerful time to leave the past "in the dust", recount one's blessings, and move forward with positive dreams! CdK is doing just that with our 28 students every month of the year. 

In our student body, we strive for a gender balance of males to females. This can vary a little each year depending on student participation. Currently, the ratio is: 12 females to 16 males. What careers are our students studying for? You will see in our list below, there's a variety of professions represented.
While most of our students are in college and university, a few are in high school and grade school. One just passed his Bar Exam, and two others graduate this summer and go out into the business world. We are so proud of their dedication! 
If you resonate with one of the fields of study, please consider becoming a monthly donorfor any amount that works for you (see our donate page). You can also make a donation as a Tribute in someone's honor, such as a birthday, anniversary, death, etc. 

We are dedicated to seeing them ALL through graduation, and your kindness during this season of renewal makes their world a better place. 

In gratitude, 
Drew L. Vogt
CdK cofounder / President

Why Oaxaca? 
Oaxaca City is the capital of the state of Oaxaca (pronounced wah-ha-kah). While our state is famous for native and culinary arts, it ranks as the country's third poorest and has one of the highest illiteracy rates. Its mountainous terrain makes commerce and education difficult, attracting many seeking a better life to Oaxaca City.
MISSION
To empower disadvantaged youth with education and life skills, enabling them to break cycles of poverty.
VISION
A world where youth are treated with respect and empowered through education, thriving in equality, integrity and freedom, creating the life of their dreams, while giving back to their community.
