San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico – Entreamigos began in 2006 on a kitchen table in the middle of a San Pancho street. Today, housed in a giant warehouse recognized as a model sustainable facility, it is an active community center with classes and workshops, a scholarship program, a bilingual library for children and adults, a computer center, an extensive recycling program, a gift store and the Recicla thrift shop.
Here’s the latest news from Entreamigos:
Getting Ready to Reopen
After 6 weeks of planning and organizing, we’re getting excited to open our doors again for the season. Starting on October 4th, we will be spending our mornings painting, hammering, cleaning and fixing so that everything is sparkling and ready to reopen on October 17th.
If you would like to help us make Entreamigos shine, please join us any weekday between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm starting October 4th. Together we can make magic happen!
A New Phase for Entreamigos
After 15 years of working together with our community, Entreamigos has come to a new challenge – the search for a new executive director.
Sarah, our current Executive Director is leaving her role after this coming season. We will miss her dearly and appreciate all the amazing work she has done for Entreamigos. A search committee is taking the next steps to ensure that this transition to new leadership is as smooth as possible.
To that end, we are inviting community members to participate in an activity in which we will define the profile that we want for candidates for this position. The meeting will take place on Friday, September 30th at 6:00 pm in the Refri room at Entreamigos.
If you are unable to attend this activity in person and would to share with us your valuable opinion, please click HERE to answer a short questionnaire that should only take a few minutes to fill out.
Thank you for your help in continuing this dream!
