Project Report | Dec 31, 2018
Preparing for the New Year

By Jamie Collum | Director

Each year during December and January, our English and Arts programs take a pause in coordination with the Nicaragua school year. Our general high school classes will begin again in early February and we use the first two weeks of each school year to register students for the new English and Arts program offerings. This year, if funding allows, we plan to offer the following:

  • Basic, Intermediate & Advanced English Classes (2 days per week, 1.5 hours per class) 
  • Visual Arts classes (1 days per week, 1.5 hours per class)
  • Dance classes (1 days per week, 1.5 hours per class)
  • Guitar class (1 days per week, 1.5 hours per class)

The ongoing costs of these programs are $60 per week for English classes which covers the salaries of 3 teachers per day, twice per week ($10 per class). The cost for the Arts program $60 per week, which covers the cost of the salaries of 3 teachers for one session per day ($20 per class). The Arts program is more expensive as we bring these teachers from Chinandega (a 40 minute drive), while the English teachers we are able to hire locally.

Our next update in the early spring will provide a number of registrees for each class.
