We started this New Year with a new center SUPERATEC-CDI Catia La Mar in Vargas state. The inauguration of the center was the past November 2013 and all the crew is exciting to work with technology. In Catia La Mar we are working with the social organization Salud y Familia (Health and Family) and its work is based in providing health services and work with the Parent School. They have plenty of experience working with the communities around the center and the education in technology was the missing part in their beautiful place. Catia La Mar is located nearby the coast, at north of the country. This is our second center in Vargas state and that it means we are growing up! Our main goal this year is reach more communities all around our country and this center is just the beginning. This year we are expecting the opening of 5 new center in different states. It is the great challenge for us and finally we are spreading our vision in order to improve communities and people through technology and employability. During 2013 we certificated over 2,300 youth and people from the communities around of our 11 centers in Venezuela. We offered 44 courses about technology, personal development and job inclusion. People of all kind has attended our courses and we are really impressed with our elders and how well they have been integrated with new technologies. We are planning to inaugurate our next center in February in Miranda state. As you can realize, we have plenty of work this year. So 2014, bring it on!

SUPERATEC is now bigger, stronger and wider!! And we expect to keep in the good track.

We already celebrate our first year with the support of Global Giving and so far you have witnessed our hard work reaching new communities in Venezuela. In this year we have inaugurated two new centers, we developed new technological and civic education courses and we are striving for excellence by training agents of change in every community we can reach.

Since May we have attended over 800 participants in our eleven centers in the country and we offered 23 different courses. The school year 2012-2013 ended it with marvelous results. Over 3 thousand people were certificated in one or more of our courses.

This summer we accepted a new challenge working with elementary school kids. So we designed a very attractive program to keep them motivated to continue their learning even in the summer! We offered technological – ecological camps for kids. Our centers in Las Mayas (Capital District) and in El Consejo (Aragua State) were the brave people who carried on with this project and the results were simply amazing. Our little participants learnt how to create their own video games with Kodu, some funny (and safe) activities in the Internet and also learnt a lot about conservation. Yes! We love technology! But we are smart enough to take care of our Earth. We attended 24 boys and girls with this program. We would like to repeat it and spread it to all our centers in Venezuela.

A new school year is beginning, bearing new challenges. Thank you for your support in this journey and we invite you to join us in this New Year.

New centers, new challenges

Certification act May 2013

This year we have an incredible project which is helping us to reach others communities in Venezuela and we are working to open at least another 4 centers in 2013 and 2 more in 2014. Also we keep our work in all our centers, providing digital inclusion for underserved communities So we are working as hard as we can!

We are strengthening our relationship with the communities. We believe that an empowered community has a key to work on its own development. This is a great lesson for us; our success is based on our capacity to understand the real need of the communities.

Since May we have attended over 900 participants. They can choose among a diversity of courses including our Superatec Program, where youth can learn about technologies, job skills and civic education. Plus, any member of the community can learn a new technological skill with our short courses. The Superatec’s Job Bank is monitoring the next step of our participants and helping them to make their way through the job market.

In our centers we aim to improve the skills of our participants, in order to improve their quality of life as individuals, but also, we are developing social leaders and changemakers who can create a new reality in their communities.
