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.
