What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Venezuela's political and economic situation has exacerbated the plight of the nation's marginalized communities. According to the National Institute of Statistics, over 27% of the population lives in poverty (7% in extreme poverty). Venezuela's low-income youth confronts debilitating social problems including teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, gang-related violence, unemployment and domestic violence, all of which create obstacles to learning and contribute to elevated school drop-out rates.

How will this project solve this problem?

SUPERATEC program utilizes a comprehensive, integrated curriculum. The human development program covers topics such as ethics, goal-setting, personal initiative, change and conflict management, effective communications, teamwork and leadership. Course work includes oratory sessions to teach the students voice projection, eye contact and body language. The technology training courses focus on Microsoft Office, internet navigation, systems architecture, hardware and software installation, etc.
