about

The Guatemalan-Maya Center has established programs in education, in health, in culture, in immigration and in advocacy. The Center operates an early childhood development outreach program, runs two after school programs in Lake Worth and Boynton Beach, provides cultural competency interpretation for the medical community, employs an attorney in order to provide legal counseling to refugees and the undocumented, provides presentations about the culture in a way that reflects the realities of today's challenges and opportunities for the Maya people, is involved in long-term hurricane relief, operates a literacy empowerment program and is working on measures to prevent gang violence in Lake Worth. The Maya fled Guatemala during the 1980s and 1990s due to an era of political violence and genocide launched against the Maya. There are approximately 22 Maya languages/dialects in Guatemala and more than five Maya languages in Palm Beach County - K'anjob'al being the most widely spoken.
