Education and Skills Development for At-Risk Youth

by Innovations and Technical Services Effective Nonprofit


This project will provide a Test preparation course program called IELTS for Success Project Vietnam (IELTS-International English Language Testing System) to more than 100 underprivileged students in rural and urban regions in Vietnam so that they will be able to participate in a higher educational standard. In addition we provide free one-on-one Academic counseling assisting students in preparing an Educational Planning Program which meets the requirements for college and career preparation.

Despite considerable economic progress in Vietnam in the last couple of decades poverty is still a problem in rural and even urban areas. Children in rural areas do not have access to a proper education with schools lacking basic facilities,. Even those who eventually make it through twelve years of schooling graduate lacking even in basic skills, making it impossible to seek gainful employment or pursue higher education.


Education is the only way for Vietnamese children to escape poverty. We have seen measurable success and we are now seeking to expand our IELTS for Success! The program will address the needs of 200 students preparing for their opportunity to obtain a good job or continue their education through College or University. The average wage per person in Vietnam is around ($150) a month so with our support we will build their self-confidence and motivation to escape poverty.

Long-Term Impact

This English education project is to improve opportunities for future development. English language skills provide access to information and technology from around the world. While students are learning English, they also have an opportunity to stretch their minds in new ways. Through communicative activities and they are exposed to an active style of learning. IELTS for Success!! Program stag one is a mobile project that we will copy throw out Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
