We are creating a model education that can be replicated through public/private partnerships so that economically deprived students in Colombia and elsewhere, no matter their race, gender or background, can compete globally.
We emphasize programs in technology, language and leadership. Our goal is to have gainfully employed and fully prepared graduates at the forefront of a new vibrant economy.
We are currently working with over 3,200 students at five Medellin-Antioquia-area schools thanks to the generous support of people like you. You can get involved as a friend, sponsor, or partner.
