"THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON YOU CAN USE TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD IS EDUCATION."

At Tapalpa Integration Center, A.C., we believe that regardless of their physical and / or social situation, every human being has rights, the ability to develop, to transform, and to transform themselves. However, there are situations and social problems that can keep us from asserting their rights and achieving full development.
That is why, with a "humanist" philosophy centered on the “being", and understanding "education as the best means of social transformation", we promote an education that provides tools to transform personal and social reality; tools that help them understand themselves, the world and their community in a different way, in such a way that in this process they find opportunities for change.
At CITAC, we understand education, emotional education, art and culture, the appropriation of values and self-esteem; as elements that promote personal, family and community development. Our values are aimed at the individual discovering their own abilities and developing them for the benefit of themselves and their community in a responsible and supportive way.
Our effort, although focused on childhood and adolescence, reaches out to families and the empowerment of women. We seek to meet felt needs, but at the same time to be a preventative springboard in the social danger to which our children and youth are exposed to and have greater vulnerability.
Lastly, at CITAC we are convinced that it is the sum of efforts that achieve change and that alliances and the generation of synergies are basic elements for transformation. That is why we bond with families, the community, and other social organizations whose mission is to improve the conditions of being.
