Youth Empowerment Program
Fabretto’s Youth Empowerment program seeks to prepare Central American youth to thrive through courses that combine academic and technical skills, personal development, and community service. We do this through:
- Technology Integration: We share our field-tested approach to leveraging digital resources to strengthen learning, particularly in STEM fields, with organizations serving rural low- to no-connectivity communities. We train teachers and staff, equip schools, and develop and share digital content.
- Youth Training (SATec Model): We train rural youth in agricultural skills through our SATec Training Program while contributing to personal and community development. We train local facilitators, share curricula and materials, and provide technical assistance throughout course implementation.
- Fabretto Educa: Fabretto offers blended learning courses to Central American youth through our online training platform, Fabretto Educa, in topics such as entrepreneurship and job readiness.
- Rural Secondary Education: We work alongside local partners to advocate for and strengthen high quality, alternative secondary education models that expand access in rural communities of Central America, with a particular focus on the Sistema de Aprendizaje Tutorial (SAT) model.
