We believe that education is one of the most foundational components for empowering communities with a new hope.
We believe in the importance of functional education and how it can open the door to the opportunities that every student should have regardless of economic status. We are laying this foundation of a brighter future by providing quality educational classes at our clubhouse locations in Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. We work in impoverished communities, and many of the students run the risk of dropping out of school in order to help provide an income for their families. We hold 8-15 classes per week at each clubhouse in the subjects of Spiritual Growth, English, Vocational Skills/Business, Healthy Relationships, and Personal Growth. Some of the classes include Art, Dance, Eco-Tourism, Business Mentoring, Organic Farming, and Human/Sex Trafficking Awareness. As the students pass each class with at least 80% “on time” attendance they receive Certificates of Completion. In 2015 Seeds awarded over 1700 certificates to students for completing classes. Graduation with 25 classes completed allows students to advance to a teacher’s aid position. The goal of Seeds is to have 60 students enrolled each session in every clubhouse who will graduate knowing that they are well loved by God, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically equipped to live a healthy and productive life, with a vocation that they are passionate about.
We are very excited to see more SOH Club Houses open throughout the world! Contact us about opening a clubhouse in your area!
