Youth Education and Training  

Historically, Guatemala has always scored low on education. The average Guatemalan attends school a mere 2.3 years, and even less in indigenous communities (1.3 years). 

According to the Ministry of Education, national gross coverage rate for middle school is 69.2% and the net rate is 43.2%. The numbers drop even more for high school where only 11.4% of young men and 8.7% of young women enroll.

 

Through ADRIG’s Youth Project, 131 young men and women from rural areas receive scholarships for secondary and high school education and 137 have been trained on technical education as bakers, cooks, nurse aides, masons, mechanics, and electricians, among others. The educational scholarships and assistance we offer provides greater work opportunities and allow the youths to make a significant economic contribution to their families by having the foundation to set up small businesses or by providing them the knowledge and skills to join the municipal, departmental or national labor market. 

In partnership with Cooperative for Education (CoEd), in 2014 three rural computer centers and one digital library were opened to improve 1,000 youth’s skills and enhance their abilities to compete in the labor market.
