Courses

 

Beginning in 2008, our training programs offer youth from poor neighborhoods of Comayagüela and Tegucigalpa opportunities to strengthen their skills in computer science, English, photography, video, art, employability and business skills so they can suceed within the labor market.
The program is ongoing and serves between 300 and 400 youth annually.
Program duration: August 2008 – Present

As part of the education program provided by the “Image Institute” (Instituto de Imagen – IDI), Libre Expresión helps young people between 16 and 29 years who do not have access to specialized education to strengthen their professional capabilities. Inorder to contribute to their personal development and that of their communities, Libre Expresión offers the following courses: computer skills, photography, English, multimedia, video processing, employability and writing a business plan. Course duration ranges from one month to six months depending on the course. Each course follows its own curriculum and methodology specially designed for underserved youth from marginalized communities in Honduras. The manuals used for each course have been developed by specialists and volunteers. The manuals have been tested and evaluated by hundreds of our students enrolled at the Image Institute. Each course is accompanied by a series of activities that foments responsibility, solidarity, creativity, expression and teamwork. This combined method stimulates social commitment and prompts youth awareness of their role in society. Courses are given Monday through Sunday at flexible hours by a team of volunteers specialized in their field who are dedicated to contribute to the personal development of their students. Class sizes vary between 20 and 25 students.
