Challenge

Youth in Iztapalapa living in poverty are highly vulnerable to joining organized crime, dropping out of school, starting work at an early age, falling into drugs and delinquency. About 1000 adolescents are arrested in Iztapalapa for some of the above reasons. They have a common factor and root, the lack of a quality education that not only teaches the basic subjects, but also human values, life skills, human development and the lack of accompaniment to guide their leadership in positive things.

Solution

In this first multi-purpose classroom we will teach sports and arts academies such as karate, theater, debate and chess, while on the soccer field we will teach soccer football, our teachers are able to teach in those academies. The purpose is take the teenagers away from the aforementioned problems and guide their leadership into something positive like sports and arts. This also works to identify teenage leaders to later invite to study in the future middle school.

Long-Term Impact

What we aim at after identifying and admitting the leaders to middle school, is that with the education we provide them, the problems we mentioned will be solved to a great extent. We not only teach basic subjects, we teach human values, life skills and provide tutoring to accompany them so that they learn that there are other ways to address their risk situations with the use of their leadership. All this forms leaders who stay away from drugs, organized crime and continue their studies.
