About the Project
Throughout its recreational sessions, the program promotes reflection and dialogue. Students also develop healthy lifestyle habits, teamwork, values for peaceful societies, XXI century skills, and knowledge about global problems that affect their local communities. These considerations reinforce the development of citizen competences.
Afterwards, children reflect on how these problems impact their community to come up with innovative ideas to mitigate them through the management of projects. Collectively, children decide which community issue concerns them most, choose a project manager, design a project calendar, manage a budget; and ultimately, execute their project.
S4S operates in all types of educational spaces, such as private, public, charter and indigenous boarding schools in Mexico, the United States, Guatemala, Argentina and the Dominican Republic.
