Día de Graduación – Celebrating Graduation
November 2-6, 2022
Antigua, Guatemala

Common Hope is excited to welcome sponsors and friends to Guatemala to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the graduating Class of 2022! It is our sincere hope that the pandemic situation allows us to travel to Antigua to celebrate with graduates and their families in a safe way. 

While the events of the trip may look different from traditional Common Hope graduation activities, we still plan to CELEBRATE! Sponsors will have an opportunity to have a personal visit with your graduate and their family.

High school graduation is a big deal in Guatemala. This accomplishment marks and opportunity to break the cycle of poverty for a student and their family as less than 20% of Guatemalans reach this milestone.

The Graduation Trip is open to sponsors of graduates, their guests, and those who would like to experience graduation in Guatemala.
