At the core of E2E’s education model is the belief that young people can be conduits for widespread community change. We believe in the power of every student enrolled in our schools to become the greatest weapon we can wield against poverty.
Building local capital from within, E2E leverages every dollar spent on rural Honduran education to achieve maximum social impact.
The Teaching Methodology
Students learn to adopt a new mindset when confronting challenges. Rather than viewing them as intractable and impossible, students become aware of the human capital that already exists within their communities and how to leverage local expertise to design low-cost interventions.
Students learn how to apply a SWOT analysis and develop SMART goals to organize their ideas and formulate a planof action.
The Leadership Journey
All students enrolled in our schools begin receiving Leadership Courses in their first year. After Year 1, students are eligible to apply to our internship program that provides intensive training on community development. Students enter the program with the goal of reaching the highest leadership level of “Secoya”. Once accepted into the internship, all students begin as Bambu Leaders, working as local trainers in their communities. As they gain experience and move up each rank, they join an elite group of student leaders who travel across the country to train in other schools. For Roble Leaders and more advanced leaders, a stipend is provided for each workshop taught.
There are a series of requirements to be promoted to the next rank. This includes accumulating hours of workshops taught as trainers, written exams, and presenting in front of senior student leaders.
