La misión de este programa es empoderar a los jóvenes de bajo nivel económico y educativo, a través del aprendizaje de habilidades prácticas y el desarrollo emocional.

Our newest project, ALDEA Trade & Arts School, is geared towards supporting local youth who have dropped out of middle and high school because of economic hardship. The program is designed to teach them a skilled trade, building self-sufficiency among students, and support them economically so they can return to school and complete their degrees. With the infrastructure and a pilot program to be completed in the first half of 2018, the official launch of ALDEA is expected in the Fall of 2018.

This comprehensive school will be modeled on 4 interdependent pillars:

1) Skilled Trades & Entrepreneurial Coaching offer young people the resources they need to create an economically stable future. Trades such as carpentry and upholstery will be taught, while creativity and innovation will be encouraged to provide original solutions for ever-evolving market needs.

2) Creativity & Design Thinking in their trade as well as provide inspiration and enjoyment of life.

3) Mindfulness program incorporating meditation and yoga as key practices for a balanced and vibrant life; increasing their ability for self-reflection, awareness of personal responsibility, and mental and emotional stability.

4) Formal Education taught through Montessori methodology and certified by INEA (National Institute for Adult Education) to earn a high school certification and acquire the academic skills needed to succeed.
