I had read that sponsorship for Mexico was through age 22; my girl was only 17 and it ended recently. I'm just curious where I can get some more information about this since there's nothing on my account.

Hi Tia! I'm sorry your sponsorship of Tifanni ended sooner than you had expected :( 22 is the maximum age for our beneficiaries in Mexico, which means that's the absolute oldest they can be when they graduate (and many students do graduate at that age), some students finish the available programs at their center sooner than that. It looks like that's what happened in Tifanni's case - She finished all of the available programs at her center at the age of 17, rather than 22. It's always a child-by-child basis, and again, I'm so sorry for any disappointment that came with seeing her graduate so early! If you have any further questions you'd like answered, we'd be happy to answer them here! I also saw we left you a voicemail at the time she graduated, giving you the details there.
