We were busy in the month of May! 24 students from Tierra Encantada Charter School in Santa Fe completed the Youth Ambassador training program. After three weeks of exploring the community, interviewing community members, and doing community service, the students earned certificates signed by Mayor Javier Gonzales and will be included in a Directory of Youth Ambassadors available to serve as greeters or speakers at local events, civic gatherings, or other schools. The students also launched their own "Love Where We Live" bog and website. You can check it out at www.lovewherewelive.info
