The Progreso Apoyo Program is a registered Mexican charity known as a “civil association” formed in 2019.  We submit required monthly reports on our income and expenses to the Mexican government and provide regular program updates on our activities to our sponsors and supporters.

The members of our Board of Directors are:

  • Speranza Avram, President and full-time resident of Progreso
  • Dale Hunter-Aubichon, Vice-President and long-time resident of Progreso
  • Mary Elizabeth Walberg, Treasurer and full-time resident of Progreso
  • Rebecca Gleason, Secretary and full-time resident of Chicxulub

The Progreso Apoyo Program owes many thanks to Kitty Morgan, who started connecting sponsors with students more than 15 years ago. Through her tireless efforts, Kitty has helped more than 200 students from Progreso and Chicxulub graduate from high school — many of these students have gone on to college or trade school. We thank Kitty for her leadership of the “original” Progreso Apoyo Program and for all of her support in helping us establish the “new” Progreso Apoyo Program!
