Joe's Crew Education Fund (El Salvador) was launched in 2018 with the purpose of connecting youth and adult learners from the community of Caserio El Escalon with educational opportunities at a local technical college. With classes in various trades such as small engine repair, welding, and tailoring being offered, students are able to develop valuable skills that are directly transferable to either employment or small enterprise creation. Through our initial phase of the project, 29 youth from the community received funding to attend the Agape College, affording them the opportunity of furthering their education and pursuing their dreams.
BUILD HER UP
The goal of Build Her Up is to create a growth mindset for the self while developing healthy relationships with others. This theme will be woven into our workshops and will help young women build confidence while helping others do the same. Build Her Up also encourages young females to challenge each other to be comfortable with adversity and failure. By helping young females face challenges and adversity in a safe environment, it develops traits such as resiliency and an increased capacity thrive in adverse situations. Workshop themes focus on building self-confidence, encouraging effective collaboration, fostering supportive teamwork skills, and developing perspective.
