We Teach Children - They Teach Us
Bilingual Education for Central America exists to promote cultural exchange and affordable bilingual education. Our volunteer-driven bilingual school model creates an environment in which Central American students learn from dedicated volunteer teachers, and those volunteers learn from the community in which they are immersed.
Through our partnership with three community-based Honduran organizations, over 450 children in Pre-K to 9th grade are educated at our three partner schools by a team of 23 US volunteers and 9 Hondurans. Two additional communities are currently being surveyed for future partnership growth.
