  ONE AMERICA - Why Yucatan?



Our focus is Yaxunah, Yucatan because:

  • It is extremely safe with little crime and few risks for youth

  • There is excellent medical care available nearby
  • The Program creators have extensive contacts and resources available
  • There is extreme need and a great desire on the part of the citizens of Yaxunah for our assistance and willingness to collaborate with Program participants
  • It is part of North America; young people can discover another  "America that is not the United States
  • Its archaeological and cultural history date back over 4000 years with many fascinating places to visit and explore
  • The enormous variety of needs and available service projects there ensure many long-range opportunities
  • It has an environment  dramatically shaped by both man and nature, and demonstrates the profound connection between man, culture, history, socio-economic status, and their effects on  environment
