At-risk children and youth enrolled in this program receive financial support that opens their door to educational opportunities. In addition, each student is followed by a team of professionals who assure that they are constantly empowered to succeed.
Lack of access to education deprives many children in Mexico of the chance to pursue their dreams and realize their potential. Many of the students in the program come from families where the parents did not have the opportunity to attend school or, if they did, many did not go beyond sixth grade. Without the chance go to school, many disadvantaged children remain caught in a cycle of poverty.
Our Youth on the Rise (Jovenes en Ascenso) program targets at-risk children and youth who have the dreams, potential and will to succeed and only need to be empowered to do so. Students enrolled in this program receive the financial support they need to transform their lives through education. Once successfully enrolled in a local educational program, each student is followed by a team of professionals who assure that they continually have the support they need to thrive.
We currently support 130 students from kindergarten through college.
