Last month, we had the pleasure of hosting the director of DAICAD, Rocio Rego, and her husband and DAICAD board member, Pedro Bernal. Ten years ago, Ms Rego and her team from Argentina visited League School in the hopes of learning and developing ideas to begin a similar school back home. Her work over the past 10 years in Argentina is truly remarkable and her school continues to grow, holding the same values as League – working to support students in reaching their full potential.

Re: League School & Daicad Collaboration
Dear Frank and Team,
I am very sorry that I took so long to write you after our visit to League School at the beginning
of September 2014.
I returned so excited with what we saw that we began working immediately in the vocational
program. In fact six vocational program students just began working in our community a couple
of weeks ago in a supermarket, a car wash and a restaurant. All these places are within walking
distance from our School which makes logistics easy, and are family-owned ventures which
made the approval process of accepting our children to work at their places very straight
forward. Our students are very excited about this new challenge and so are our staff and
I wanted to thank you and the entire League team for opening your doors to us and for being so
generous with all the valuable information and ideas that you provided during our visit.
We look forward to strengthening our bonds and keeping conversations regarding the possibility
of professional exchanges and conference calls to discuss specific situations and best practices
as we discussed. We are of course open to receiving League team members in Daicad
whenever you consider it appropriate.
Thank you so much again for all your help. I hope to see you again in the very near future.
