GOING OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY

WE JOIN THE COMMUNITY

Educando in the Mobile Classroom

Computer Courses

The Mobile Classroom is a semitrailer equipped with a modern computer classroom, which is installed at a school or community centre. We may offer up to 35 simultaneous courses for the youth and adults Monday through Sunday and morning through evening. At the end of the courses we organize an event to give our graduates (about 1000 in six months) their diploma, celebrating that a great number of people have come back to education.
We develop free three months long computer courses for the youth and adults, training them from the basic concepts through management of applications specialized in design, programming and internet. The program seeks to integrate each member of the community, and thus shortening the digital gap, improving their self-esteem, their competences and their job opportunities. As it focuses at digital literacy, it is open to the youth and adults of all ages, strengthening the commitment and our bet to education as a means of insertion and social inclusion.

Educando on the border

IT Courses

We reach the farthest communities in the country taking our IT portable equipment. This way we offer digital literacy to the youth and adults in various locations. This itinerant equipment has access to various locations in a region by car as it is transported in two suitcases. This programme allows us to reach remote places where technology is scarce. It offers a unique opportunity to people who live far from urban areas and therefore are deprived of such training.

Educando in Technological Innovation

Robotics Course, Programming

Robotics, Programming, 3D Printing, Internet are some of the axes we work on together with technical schools and professional training centres to transmit the knowledge among adults and promote their updating and job insertion.
The courses are 42 hours long, and they are determined in response to the job demand of the enterprises in the area.

Educando in Information Technology

Computer Courses

We develop free three months long computer courses for the youth and adults, training them from the basic concepts through management of applications specialized in design, programming and internet. To do so we make use of existing computer rooms that the institution (school, parish, community centre, etc.) makes available.
The program seeks to integrate each member of the community, and thus shortening the digital gap, improving their self-esteem, their competences and their job opportunities.
As it focuses at digital literacy, it is open to the youth and adults of all ages, strengthening the commitment and our bet to education as a means of insertion and social inclusion.

Educando in Musical Expression

Workshop

We carry out musical workshops and child and juvenile orchestras encouraging a discipline practise that puts into action valuable capacities and talents. It is through music that social inclusion of the needed is strengthened, and throughout the years it may awaken many hidden possibilities of growth, transforming their lives through this artistic expression.
We also organize choral and orchestral conduction workshops to support and strengthen the orchestras and choir in the provinces, in places where there is no other support.

Educando in Languages

Courses

Language is another way of expanding job opportunities for the people and the whole community. Through us many may have access to English courses in the level that best suits the group. We seek to promote the interest for another language and develop new abilities to afford a globalized world and a demanding labour market. We offer 4 level courses, each of them is 9 months long. They are frequently organized according to the enterprises and tourism demands, as they are true employers.

Educando in Sports

Leadership training

Through lectures, meetings and sport clinics, we promote contention for the youth and local institutions, supporting developing clubs so that they increase their capacity and educational outreach.
At each meeting Professional and famous sportspeople share their experience and are good example for the community.
The programme focuses on strengthening the institutions (schools and clubs) and the people, to include them through the healthy sports practise, in the frame of the sport values and strengthen positive leadership

Educando in Health

Training and Prevention

The programme aims at including all the members of the community in the sanitary system. We promote the usefulness of the local health system through training and information of healthy practises of prevention and self-care.

Educando in Trades

Training

We train in trades to improve the students’ abilities and generate new job opportunities. Training is given to the youth and adults with the least opportunity to receive any kind of education so that they may get a better qualified job. The courses are 3 months long and may be on welding, blacksmith, sewing, sewing patterns, hairdresser, manicure, pastry, bakery, social and artistic makeup, carpentry, construction, PC repair, clothing design, loom, motorcycles repair, canine hairdresser, etc.
We, thus, respond to the local demand and to the concrete training need, in constant dialogue with the community. These courses are a great motivation for self-employment or for applying at some enterprise, with good job opportunities.

Educando Scholarship Programme

Financed Training Extension

Educando Scholarship Programme applies to students and teachers that participate in courses that offer the possibility of improving their knowledge.
Motivation and outstanding in one of the study disciplines is what is taken into account for the designation of the scholarships.
It may cover transport fee, or inputs or courses cost in certified educational institutions.

Educando with the teachers

Training Courses

Through courses designed for teachers, we train and update them so that the newly acquired knowledge reaches their students through everyday work in the classroom.
We mainly focus on pedagogic training in the new technologies and the inclusion of the new teaching methods.
In certain cases the programme may add to the teachers’ evaluation score if the corresponding arrangements have been settled with the educational ministries in each province.

Educando Venues

Training Courses

We promote the setting up of IT training centres in public and private educational centres as part of adults training. Each new venue that is added to Educando is given a complete computer room with connectivity to the web, a printer or projector, and permanent technical support.
The programme offers the ideal area for the youth and adults training with other programmes of the Foundation, bringing the institution to the community.
As it considers the donation of material, certain continuity in time with other programmes that may take advantage of the IT room (e.g.:Educando in IT) is regarded with the new venue.
