Student Expectations

To be sponsored, our students must qualify and demonstrate a need. To remain in the program our students are expected to:

  • Maintain passing grades.  When grades start slipping, students develop an improvement plan and receive additional personalized tutoring until their grades improve.

  • Write to their sponsors 3-4 times per year.

  • Attend scheduled seminars regarding subjects such as domestic-violence prevention, health care, and oral hygiene. These are often coordinated with the Ministry of Health.

  • Participate in community service activities. We also encourage the older girls to mentor and tutor the younger students.

Keeping up with your Student

Sponsors will receive regular report cards from their student along with a short hand-written letter. We encourage you to communicate directly with your student via post.

You may also visit and volunteer at our center in Nicaragua. This is a great opportunity to meet your student, her family, and our community in Jinotega. The hospitality of the staff is fantastic as they try to make your stay as comfortable as possible in the Community Center. Needless to say, your stay will be a memorable one.
