Primary Programs and Projects

Educational Program: “Don’t Abandon Your Dream”

CENAPEC offers an educational program in closed groups for pregnant teens and young mothers in similar situations in order to present them with a path which will allow them to finish their high school studies and renew their hope for a successful life.

The project seeks to reduce one of the aspects of social exclusion which confronts the population and which reduces their participation in the social, economic and cultural life of their respective communities due to the lack of access to educational opportunities and the labor market, which impacts their possibility for full social participation and, in many cases, worsens their situation of poverty, vulnerability and marginalization.

The project consists of classrooms of 30 people in similar situations where specific educational programs geared to the individual needs of the candidates will be offered.

The development of the courses in the same facilities where we offer basic education classes is envisioned, or as closed programs in spaces selected for these purposes.

During the execution of the program a series of activities will be carried out, which include:

• Enrollment of those students meeting the requirements;
• Distribution of educational materials;
• Periodic evaluation of student performance;
• Community service projects;
• Self esteem programs; and
• Graduations

Educational Program: “A Book for a Future¨

CENAPEC delivers all educational material necessary for an academic period and campaigns to procure financing of the costs associated with the materials.

The 15,000 students enrolled in our institution will receive a total of nine units during the course.

The deliver of materials in the precincts and administrative offices every month.
