Organization for Youth Empowerment

OYE has served the at-risk youth population of El Progreso, Honduras since its foundation in 2005. Through the years, OYE has evolved from a straightforward scholarship program to an integrated educational and leadership program with the mission of forming socially-conscious youth leaders who are agents of change in their communities. We envision a society where Honduran youth are active contributors to the positive development of their country.

Mission

OYE has served the at-risk youth population of El Progreso, Honduras since its foundation in 2005. Through the years, OYE has evolved from a straightforward scholarship program to an integrated educational and leadership program with the mission of forming socially-conscious youth leaders who are agents of change in their communities. We envision a society where Honduran youth are active contributors to the positive development of their country.

Programs

The Organization for Youth Empowerment's approach to youth empowerment is divided into three core programs: the Academic Scholarship Program, the Capacity-Building and Leadership Program and the Community Engagement Program, which is divided into five diverse projects. Partial academic scholarships for secondary and university-level studies allow at-risk Honduran youth with few economic resources to access the formal education system, while the capacity-building program provides youth with both vital and practical knowledge and skills for personal and professional development. The five community engagement projects - art, radio, magazine, graphic design and sports - provide youth with the opportunity to engage with their peers and express their perspectives on the reality in which they live, ultimately with the objective of creating positive change in El Progreso and in Honduras.
