Challenge

According to 2014 data, a total of 30% of 15-24 year olds in the Dominican Republic have not completed primary education & only 16% of this population achieved post-secondary education. There are barriers in accessing quality, comprehensive learning opportunities due to lack of technology and specialized instruction. Decreased access to these tools can impede educational attainment & decrease income-earning potential. Resource constraints in the education system cannot always address these gaps.

Solution

A successful project will allow our students to: Learn the ways in which technology can transform lives around the world; participate in video conference lessons with their peers in the U.S. and Dominican; take notes during experience based education programs which will facilitate recollection & report generation; provide access to reliable Internet research capabilities; create presentations to train seniors on how to use the Internet; and prepare content for the InnerStar student blog.

Long-Term Impact

InnerStar supports Dominican students through technological & skill training & by supporting the student's self-efficacy & embracing their potential to succeed. By combining training & character development, we believe our students will become leaders who will usher in new inventions & offer creative problem-solving to overcome global challenges. InnerStar has a track record of motivating youth to achieve unthinkable goals. Our program will support greater education & workforce readiness.
