English Classes

All La Catalina Foundation programs are offered free-of-charge. We look for sponsors, supplies, and donations to keep these programs running.

English Classes in the Public Schools

All students in La Manzanilla’s pre-school through middle school receive weekly English classes. LCF provides trained teachers.  In partnership with Careyes Foundation, students in grades 2 - 6 receive a free Beyond Borders English textbook. We welcome American or Canadian volunteers who can commit to assisting for a minimum of two months to volunteer in this program.


Beyond Borders Text Book

La Catalina Foundation is working with Careyes Foundation, a U.S. non-profit charity, to produce custom made English-Spanish workbooks.  These workbooks are tailored specifically to the educational needs of the children of Costalegre. To date, 1,200 children in 13 Mexican elementary schools are learning English with our Levels 2, 3 & 4 Beyond Borders English books.
