In Superarse, many young people who want study opportunities, find support to develop and change their future. In the celebration of the 50 years of SUPERARSE, we are proud to have contributed to TRANSFORM THE LIFE of 150 young people with this project.
In 2019, 60 disadvantaged young people without money received different advice, support, financial support and scholarships according to their needs. With an investment of more than US $ 20,000 plus scholarships, for more than US $ 30,000 for private universities, 21 young people are studying to become professionals and every time they are closer to achieving their dream, 5 more, they were able to find work, thanks to the management made by SUPERARSE.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THEM, success in your future, is the future of the country's development.
During this year, a process has been carried out with each of the young people benefited, with personalized advice in order to investigate their development spheres (family, academic, personal). Identifying characteristics of each one, in order to make individual orientations for their study and that will be adjusted to the wishes of each one of them.
In the year we have accompanied more than 60 young people to advance in their professional education and fulfill the dream of changing their lives through education and formal employment. Currently with scholarships and financial support, more than 15 young people advance professional careers in public and private universities in Colombia.
With this project we aim to impact the following SDGs:
4. Quality Education 5. Gender Equality 8. Decent work and economic growth 10. Reduction of inequalities
BEING ABLE TO CHANGE THE WORLD DEPENDS ON EACH ONE OF US, WITH YOUR SUPPORT, THE LIFE OF MANY YOUNG PEOPLE CAN CHANGE!
During the past month, a total of 15 new young people were assisted in individual counseling and 2 focus groups in the modalities of Internship and Outpatient care. The accompaniment that has been offered has been oriented to establish commitments on the part of young people who wish to start their university studies and that they manage to recognize the opportunity offered to them with this program, offering them scholarships or the possibility of contributing to their higher studies. In total we are providing opportunities for study, employment or entrepreneurship to 49 young people without resources.
In all the processes that were worked on during the month, personalized advice was generated in order to investigate their development spheres (family, academic, personal). It was possible to identify the characteristics of each one, in order to carry out individual orientations and that fit the wishes of professionalization
With some of those who are already studying, they continue with the telephone contact, in order to monitor their personal processes.
With recurring donations or unique contributions, YOU CAN SUPPORT the education of a youth without resources in Colombia, giving them the opportunity to improve their working conditions and options, allowing them to develop their life project.
My name is Ricky, I am a plastic artist and I am 30 years old, when I was child, I lived in the boarding school of the Corporación SUPERARSE from 1995 to 1999, then I returned to live in the street as an indigent and my life was an odyssey of hardships and sorrows, one day a teacher rescued me and went back to SUPERARSE, I started a new life process, I committed myself to study, they supported me to perform artistic watercolor art studies, with very positive results, then with the support of a sponsor of the Corporación SUPERARSE, I could enter the University of Fine Arts and for my work and good performance I participated in several exhibitions, now I have a master's degree in education and I teach art to children who like me do not have a home to grow.
Corporación Superarse has been vital in my path, rescuing all my educational, cultural and family process, day by day supports my life project and that of many young people that like me dream of studying to change their future and that of their family.
Today I continue to strive to improve my art and to support many young people who also need your support to study and get ahead. We hope your participation in the Bonus Day campaign next July 18, with your contributions we can continue making many dreams come true!!!
This month, through this project, 8 young people with limited resources have been able to enroll in different educational institutions, to access higher and university education through different government programs. With the support of the psychologist that guides the project, the young people received advice and accompaniment to gather the documentation and carry out the registration process, now we are waiting for them to confirm if everyone is going to be able to start studying their professional career.
Each year thousands of young people close to their degree in secondary education begin an arduous search for the right institution to pursue their higher education and yet in Colombia only 34% of young people gain access to a higher education institution, this problem is accentuated more in young people with scarce resources, poor communities and forgotten by the state.
With your support we will achieve that more of these young people have education and can build a new future for themselves and their families. To join the educational support plan, you can call us at (574-4484110 ext181) or see more information at:
