Challenge

Panama's students are one of the poorest performers in LATAM. Desertion rates are high. While 97% of Panamanian kids enroll in primary education, only 69% reach secondary. A poor child has a 1/20 chance of graduating secondary. Less than half of our youth enroll in college. Teachers aren't highly trained, not evaluated nor well paid, with little motivation. Vulnerable citizens receive a poor education to later pursue poor jobs. Educational & teacher quality aren't adequate to reverse the cycle.

Solution

ExP recruits high achieving, socially conscious, committed young leaders; offers an intensive, training program (teaching essentials of pedagogy and innovative methodologies). ExP work diligently to help students achieve them, teaching academic content and critical thinking. ExP implements a model of continuous support and coaching. By the end of the two year experience participants will be prepared to become active leaders toward educational change in the country.

Long-Term Impact

Our mission is to inspire a movement formed by leaders committed to improve the quality of education and reduce inequalities in Panama, taking action inside and outside the classroom. In that sense, we are sure that the most important task we have is to train people so that they become the change in the near future.Our alumni are already involved in long term improvement our social ecosystem (73% of our current alumni work in the social sector; 70% of those are working in education).
