BENEFITING: ASOCIACION MAYAB
The Maya Youth Summer Program really needs your help this year. We are partnering with others to make it a success but we still need some additional funding to cover expenses for field trips, books and materials for kids.
The program provides Maya youth in the Bay Area language instruction and experiences that reaffirm their cultural identity, values and pride. Kids learn the basics of the Maya language as they participate in glyph writing, story telling, and singing. They also take part in ceremonial activities and conversations with our elders. A program highlight last year was learning about Mayan astronomy at the Chabot Space Science Center.
Renowned Maya writer and teacher Ana Patricia Martinez-Huchim will once again travel from Yucatan to teach the class and share her ample wisdom and knowledge with our youth in San Francisco.
