Con el propósito de mejorar la atención de trámites relativos a auxilio judicial, a partir del próximo lunes 10 de junio los exhortos y cartas rogatorias dirigidos al Consulado General de México en San Diego se recibirán directamente en la oficina de esta representación ubicada en el antiguo Puerto de Entrada estadounidense en San Ysidro, en la línea internacional fronteriza.

El horario de atención será de 09:00 a 13:00 horas de lunes a viernes en la oficina 131 del puerto antiguo, a la que se llega a través de la línea peatonal de la garita internacional de San Ysidro. Para mayor información, los interesados pueden comunicarse al teléfono (619) 690-5717 con el licenciado Miguel Martínez.

Con esta medida, el Consulado General de México busca ampliar las facilidades de horario y de días de atención única y exclusivamente en materia de exhortos judiciales y cartas rogatorias, evitando además que los interesados tengan que desplazarse hasta el centro de San Diego para la simple entrega de documentos.

Escondido Education COMPACT, Sierra Club Announce Launching of New Summer Camp

ESCONDIDO — Escondido Education COMPACT and the Sierra Club announced today the launching of their first ever summer camp to be held June 17-21, 2002, for San Diego youth.

Dubbed “Camp REV,” the camp will provide a unique opportunity for students who would not normally receive recreational exposure. Through outdoor activity, students will learn about the environment and familiarize themselves with local habitats as well as with careers associated with recreation. To date, the camp has tallied 90 at-risk youth.

“Our main goal with this venture is to impress upon the students the need to be open to opportunities in the outdoors. We will do this in a way that will be both educational and recreational for vocational purposes,” said camp director Darren Johnson.

The camp will be funded, in part, by a partnership between the Escondido Education COMPACT and the Sierra Club.

Escondido Education COMPACT is a non-profit organization designed to provide youth with job readiness training and links to employment in collaboration with the San Diego Workforce Partnership’s WIA Year-Long Youth programs. These programs provide education and employment preparation services to youth, ages 14-21, via a skills-based initiative comprised of community-contracted youth service providers.

The Sierra Club is a nationally recognized organization dealing with the preservation of natural and ecological resources.

For more information on “Camp Rev,” contact Darren Johnson at (760) 839-4515 or DLJohnson@ci.escondido.ca.us, or Yvonne Silva at (619) 744-0367 or yvonnes@workforce.org.
