After school program helping Guadalupe residents push back against poverty
Oct. 26, 2017
Twenty-five percent of the residents of Guadalupe live in poverty and close to 40 percent of the children won’t graduate from high school. But this town of 5,500 largely Yaqui Indians and Hispanics is pushing back against the persistent poverty.
They’ve started with home grown programs to help kids get through school, including the Guadalupe Learning lab, an after school mentoring and tutoring programs run by locals.
This report is part of an ongoing PBS series on poverty and opportunity, “Chasing the Dream.”
