Meet Jessa and Christiana


It’s a new year at Safe Passage which means more fun experiences and more Support Teams!

Christiana and Jessa are the new Support Team Coordinators and are super excited to be a part of such an inspiring and hard-working organization.

Jessa: I was born and raised in Maryland and graduated from Towson University with a degree in Psychology after studying abroad in Peru. During college, I worked with a non-profit organization in Honduras leading volunteer trips and fundraising.

Graduation - Not a dry eye

“It was VERY hard to keep a dry eye on Saturday,” said Visitors Coordinator Steve Cook of the high school and adult literacy graduation ceremonies held on Saturday, November 23. Our staff and volunteers worked hard to transform our comedor (cafeteria) into a splendid graduation hall decked out with streamers, fragrant flowers, banners, and bright balloons. The high school graduation was in the morning and a buzzing crowd of parents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends filled our seating beyond capacity. It was an emotional moment when the high school students marched through the balloon arch and down the center aisle with a Guatemalan flag to the cheers of the assembly. This year we have 14 students earning their high school degrees and going on to seek higher education and professional careers.

Thanksgiving and Thinking about Food

It's Thanksgiving week and thoughts turn to food. What should I eat on the Kayak Safe Passage Maine to Guatemala expedition?
