No staff live at the orphanage. However, there are always people on duty to tend to the children, day and night! We have 12 staff serving the children in Tijuana. These include an Executive Director and her administrative team, along with cooks and “patio moms” and a homework tutor. (“Patio moms” are the ones who brush the kids’ hair, supervise outdoor play, get the kids ready for bed, etc.)
All of our staff have been certified by Mexico’s Secretary of Education. And, we take every opportunity to provide our staff with ongoing training. Vida Joven kids deserve the best care possible!
