El Camino Faith and Enrichment Program: 2016-17 Results
El Camino, which means "the Way" in Spanish, is an extended day program in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx that provides academic support, enrichment, and formation in good character and the Catholic faith for underserved children who cannot afford a Catholic school. El Camino helps children, their families, and their teachers to know, love, and serve Christ and His Church; develop the habits, dispositions, and beliefs that are indispensable to human flourishing and happiness; and live as disciples in this world and saints in the next.
In its fourth year, (2016-2017), El Camino served over 180 children in kindergarten through fourth grades. Fourteen children entered the Catholic Church through Baptism. Below are highlights of our results. For a printable version, click here.
