Lets Be Ready

Our mission is to use unemployed youth in Guatemala to prepare at-risk Guatemalan children for the first-grade by establishing preschool classrooms and training the teachers. Our vision is to help break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala by reducing the high rate of drop-out and repetition of children in the first-grade while giving jobs to an underutilized portion of the population, young men and women. Our goal is to have none of our students fail the first grade and to advance the teachers as productive members and leaders in their communities.
