Summary

In Chile there are only a few vocational guidance programs, which is why we are looking to improve our website, to build a vocational guidance portal and improve our training services for teachers, parents and students. In this way, we are going to support 7 municipal schools in Temuco, directly benefiting more than 500 young people. We will deliver vocational education and more information on access to Higher Education to students who come from the most vulnerable region of Chile.

Challenge

In Chile there is unequal access to Higher Education, with municipal schools having the lowest income in Higher Education, around 50% compared to private schools, which Access is 77%. In addition, there is a great lack of vocational guidance programs for educational establishments in Chile, we see that many talents are lost due to lack of information and low expectations of students, families and even the teachers themselves.

Solution

As a foundation, we understand that the problem is the lack of access to information in most schools, which is why we see that the delivery of relevant and timely information can be a tremendous opportunity to promote a new culture, break stereotypes, generate inclusion processes and deliver concrete tools for autonomous, conscious and informed decision making. Thus also generating more equitable access to Higher Education

Long-Term Impact

We will promote more students to enter higher education, in addition to promoting a climate of high expectations for children. This would reduce the number of students who dropped out in their first year of admission to higher education (about 27% dropped out in their first year). With all this, we will promote a new culture, break stereotypes, generate inclusion processes and deliver concrete tools for autonomous, conscious and informed decision-making for the choice of career or profession
