Entreamigos primary focus is to increase educational opportunities for the children of San Pancho in Nayarit Mexico.
To achieve these goals Entreamigos runs an art collective
non-profit store, a library, a computer center and a collection of educational and community based workshops and initiatives.
Entreamigos is entirely funded by donations and almost completely run by volunteers. To learn more about our programs and activities or to make a donation or become a volunteer please read below:
Library and Computer Center
In November, 2006 we opened Biblioteca San Pancho, a library, and small but dynamic community meeting place. Open six days a week, the library is home to a computer center and a growing collection of books in Spanish and English for children and adults. Visits from the Kindergarten, Elementary and Jr. High classes during the day are in addition to programs such as homework assistance, reading circles and art workshops which are offered after school. All programs at the library are provided free of charge. Your donations are greatly appreciated
Education and Outreach
Entreamigos is committed to increasing educational opportunities for all of the children of San Pancho. In collaboration with the teachers in the schools, Entreamigos seeks to complement their work by providing additional resources; such as teacher training opportunities, the library and computer center and in-school workshops using art to discuss and explore themes like environmental responsibility, drugs and sexuality. All services to the schools are provided free of charge.
Entreamigos programs come alive in the six weeks of summer! We offer six weeks of educational and recreational classes including English, Computer classes, Swim lessons and a collection of additional classes such as yoga, cooking, soccer etc depending on the skills of the volunteers available during the summer. In 2006, our first year of summer workshops, we had more than 100 kids participate and 30 volunteer teachers. We are planning a spectacular summer for 2007!
Entreamigos runs a scholarship program for children of limited resources. Annual scholarships provide uniforms, school supplies and pay all school expenses. For some children, having a scholarship is the only way that they could attend classes. If you would be interested in supporting a child scholarship please contact or donate

We believe that part of what makes San Pancho so special is its unique sense of community. We believe that “Community” is a choice that requires participation, practice and commitment. Entreamigos creates opportunities for the community of San Pancho to unite and actively work together for positive change in the form of community beautification projects, town clean ups, Planta San Pancho – an annual reforestation, as well as many festivals and cultural events.
