Our commitment to education is coordinated with the Ministry of Education (MINED) to promote innovation and job readiness upon graduation. Guacalito de la Isla strives to keep kids in school, families intact, improve the educational experience for all, and inspire a new generation of young adults in Tola to become the social entrepreneurs of the future. There is now increased interest in extracurricular activities like sports, culture and English training, which opens many more opportunities for guests to make a difference.
For guests who possess skills in areas of interest, you are invited to teach and share at any of our classes offered to the local community. Our soccer academy meets early morning and midafternoon Monday–Friday, and community English classes meet 5–7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. Computer classes meet on various schedules Monday–Friday, the same as physical education classes. We can also organize a special session to fit your schedule if necessary.
Guests can also give back by donating clothing or sports equipment such as sports or tennis shoes, shirts, soccer or baseball uniforms (complete sets for an entire team are ideal), or deflated soccer balls. Art supplies, reusable tote bags and other school supplies are also needed. Used laptops, if they are still working, are in great demand. Please consider donating one if you’ve recently upgraded.
