immediate situation and to give opportunity for everyone, by providing
a safe, caring environment and stimulating programs enabling some

full potential as contributing adults, citizens, and leaders. Today,
the need is still great for the vital educational, recreational,
and skills development programs and services that Centro Guanin
offers in communities nationwide.
We continue to help guide young Dominicans toward responsible,
fulfilling, and productive adulthood. We have Center-established

Today, Centro Cultural Guanin, Inc. is dedicated to ensuring that
members of our community are given every opportunity to develop
to their full potential, so that they can meet the challenges of
