Challenge

In Brazil poor adolescents are locked out of the best publicly-funded technical schools because their neighborhood schools do not adequately prepare them to take the competitive exams required for admission. These technical schools that grant degrees in accounting, biochemistry, and information technology represent a crucial leap into an improved social and economic level. PACTO aims to help these youth set educational and professional goals and provide the means to reach them and go beyond.

Solution

An innovative tutorial program that assists intellectually endowed students in reviewing basic concepts taught in grades 5-8, in response to an urgent need to aid youth with the knowledge necessary to compete in a technology-based global marketplace.

Long-Term Impact

This project will successfully prepare students for entrance exams for technical schools through competent teaching and motivation.
