Our Program

Oportunidades is a Program committed to support the employability abilities in young women and men who are high-performing students and have a great desire to thrive in life but lack the economic resources to achieve their goals.

The program offers young Salvadorans an opportunity to learn all the vital skills and knowledge to ensure their success both in school and out, necessary for an effective labor insertion in today’s competitive job markets, or to launch their own personal entrepreneurial projects.

Oportunidades teaches the knowledge, skills, and values to young people so they reach their full potential through the program’s 3 consecutive phases:

Phase 1: Complementary Education

During the first phase, Oportunidades has the primary goal of teaching values and high quality complementary high school education with subjects that include as English, Computer Language, Math, Science, Linguistics and Career Counseling.

Our study program, delivered at our training facilities, focuses around the development of skills and the active participation in society preparing our young students to increase their opportunities to engage in higher education and ultimately have access to jobs.

Phase 2: Higher Education

Because we firmly believe in the potential of young promising Salvadorans, we grant scholarships for top Universities and Technical Colleges. As part of our shared responsibility philosophy, students pay a percentage of their tuition with their own means or get preferential special rate loans at local financial institutions.

During the program’s 15 years of operations, 1,403 scholarships have been awarded.
