A big thanks to our donors to the "Employment Support for Extollo Alumni in Haiti" project!

This summer we held an Alumni Association meeting at our campus with almost 100 alumni, and the event included networking opportunities, job search coaching, and guest speakers from the construction industry. We also gave the alumni a survey that gave us really good data on how our alumni are faring in the local job market, and what skills they feel they need to be successful in the workforce.

We also had graduation for our Port-au-Prince campus at our Bercy campus, to show the new alumni the many construction businesses we are launching, show them how their training can produce structures of high quality, and inspire them to get involved in our tilt-up and metal fabrication operations.

In this class - the first class to be taught by Extollo at the new Port-au-Prince campus - one of the female students really shined in the Masonry Level 1 class, and won an award for her tenacity in learning a new skill in the construction trades. We are inspired and hopeful that more and more women will take our classes and thus join our Alumni Association!
