Job Training for Youth
This project is still on the drawing board; we hope to get it going soon. We will provide job training for motivated students from El Hato and Jocotenango who have participated in our other programs (Garden of Hope and El Hato Educational Support). Very often motivated students do not have the resources to go to college, but with guidance and training they can develop marketable job skills. We’ll train these students and then coordinate with local businesses to give them their first job opportunities. Possible employment areas include: eco-tourism, cooking (for restaurants), permaculture, organic agriculture and carpentry.
