The W.C.V.T.C. is a natural extension of the Child Care Plus outreach in Guatemala. For over fifteen years now, the C.C.P. effort has linked arms with the Assemblies of God, Latin America Child Care system, in order to help 15 Guatemalan grade schools through monthly sponsorships from the U.S.A. and Canada.
We have just gone through the very exciting experience of opening the school with a great dedication and celebration service which was held on the 13th January 2007. The actual opening day for the school was on the 15th January 2007 when we had the pleasure, after so many years of preparation, of welcoming our new student body to come and begin receiving their higher education at the William Cornelius Vocational Training Centre.

As expatriates, Pauline and I are working ourselves out of a job. We believe it imperative to hand over the reins to our trained and mentored, national leaders as soon as the possibility presents itself. Guatemala is emerging as a developing country and is I believe, ready to take it's place as one of Central America's leaders in a variety of areas such as production technologies and marketing as well as agricultural industries.
In order to teach at the school, it is necessary to have a Guatemalan teaching certificate. We are nevertheless open to receiving qualified volunteers who meet the requirements of our application process in advance of taking up a position at the WCVTC.
