The aim of the program is to assist Latin American students to graduate from secondary school and move into vocational, college or general further education.
Citizen participation offers a wide variety of opportunities for adults, professionals, community leaders and university students to assist in giving Latin American students a more rewarding school experience. Our volunteers donate their time in order to tutor and mentor students, to assist on field trips and to get an insight of community, college and university life. For children in need of an older or adult friend, volunteers became particularly important. During this process, they help youngsters to think creatively, and they assist in building students self-esteem.
