Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.
We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:
The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.
The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.
The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.
The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

Our organization is aiming to provide Guatemalan at-risk youth with the chance to overcome poverty through education. Our goal is for the children to graduate from our various programs being able to get well-paying jobs to provide for their future. By instilling in these children a love for learning, we hope they themselves will instill a love for learning in their future families. Problems such as poverty, violence, and instability in 3rd world countries tend to boil down to corruption. An uneducated population is much easier to control and manipulate. By building a trade center and offering courses and certifications in high demand occupations, we will enable individuals to acquire formal jobs upon completion of their studies. Formal jobs in Guatemala offer minimum wage or higher pay and benefits such as public health insurance, maternity leave, two additional monthly salaries per year, better working conditions, retirement funds, and more. By starting at the bottom with the simple skill of reading, we hope our impact will trickle upwards, and ultimately better Guatemalan society as a whole, lowering poverty rates and increasing the quality of life.
By offering a well-rounded education beginning from the elementary all the way to the vocational level, we ensure our students have the tools to be able to find formal employment within Guatemala upon completion of their studies. By filling in gaps in the public education system with our supplemental programs, we are able to give these students as much of a chance as possible. Our Elementary Education Program allows students to attend school without the normally prohibitive costs of uniforms and supplies. Our Secondary Education Program allows students to continue beyond the 6th grade public graduation level. Our Supplemental Education Programs in computer and English provide important marketable job skills that the public sector usually fails in providing. Our Vocational Education Program provides trade degrees for at-risk youth, allowing them to find formal employment.
Along with a strong support system in the United States for funding, we also have deep roots in Guatemala. With about half of our Board members and volunteers being Guatemalan themselves, we have both the experience and the understanding of Guatemalan practices. Our partnership with the children's home Hogar Miguel Magone provides the students with not only basic needs, but the emotional support needed to be successful in school.
Elementary Education Program Students are able to graduate/complete the 6th grade. Secondary Education Program Students graduate from high school and move on to vocational or university studies. Supplemental Education Programs Computer: Students achieve and demonstrate basic to advanced computer skills. English: Upon completion of curriculum, students are able to pass the TOEFL exam. Vocational Education Program Upon graduation/certification, adolescents will be offered formal jobs within Guatemala.
So far we have: - Provided uniforms and supply assistance to approximately 300 children per year - Inaugurated a computer center located at Hogar Miguel Magone and hired a teacher for bi-weekly classes for 60 children. - Enrolled 4 Guatemalan teens in trade schools, where they are currently pursuing degrees in electricity, auto mechanics, and mechanical refrigeration. What's next: - January 2020 - Launching out English Language Learning program - 2022-23 - Beginning construction of our Trade Center
