Program Description:

More than 90% of schools in rural Guatemala don't have access to textbooks. Without them, students spend most classroom time copying the teacher's notes from the blackboard. They often fail to develop proper study skills, lose motivation, and then drop out. CoEd's Textbook Program provides vital books (in the core areas of math, science, social studies, and Spanish) to middle school students in order to improve the quality of teaching and learning. http://www.coeduc.org/programs/textbooks.html

Program Long-Term Success:

More than 85% of the Textbook Programs implemented since CoEd’s founding in 1996 continue to thrive, replacing their books about every five years. The programs have improved student and teacher performance and morale at the schools.   25,853 Guatemalan youths use CoEd textbooks. 111,162 CoEd textbooks are in circulation. 185 schools participate in the Textbook Program, accounting for about 10% of all rural middle schools in Guatemala.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2013: 7 additional schools received textbooks. 4,260 textbooks were purchased. 663 students received textbooks.

Program Success Monitored by:

Annual Program Evaluations

Program Success Examples:

Students at Textbook Program schools gain deep exposure to 42% more of the curriculum and understand 44% more course content than they did before textbooks. 90% of students consider the Textbook Program helpful in facilitating learning and retention. Textbooks free up 35% of class time to engage students in active discussion.

Program Description:

In Guatemala, nearly 60% of higher-wage, non-farm jobs require computer skills, yet young people in rural communities lack access to quality computer instruction. The Computer Centers Program gives youth the opportunity to use technology to address practical problems facing their communities, while developing the computer skills needed to secure better jobs after graduation. Students learn from an internationally recognized curriculum using a project-based methodology that encourages critical thinking and working cooperatively. http://www.coeduc.org/programs/computers.html

Program Long-Term Success:

Of the Computer Center graduates interviewed, 83% said they used their newly acquired computer skills to further their education in vocational schools or to acquire higher-paying jobs. 17,223 students learn at CoEd Computer Centers. 54 Computer Centers are in operation.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2013: 2 additional computer centers were created. 6 new computer teachers were trained. approximately 649 additional students are receiving computer training.

Program Success Monitored by:

Budget:

Category:
None
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)
Adults
None

Program Description:

Children in rural Guatemala typically read three years below grade level. Poorly-trained teachers use classroom techniques that emphasize memorization instead of comprehension and critical thinking. CORP delivers high-quality children's books and training in effective reading instruction to primary school educators, transforming rural Guatemalan schoolchildren into enthusiastic, competent, and lifelong readers. http://www.coeduc.org/programs/CORP.html

Program Long-Term Success:

268 teachers have been trained in 33 rural elementary schools. 6,270 children read and write every day in CORP classrooms.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2013: 2,384 additional students were added to the CORP Program. 6 schools began CORP training. 10,404 CORP books were given to teachers. 84 teachers began CORP training.

Program Success Monitored by:

Annual Program Evaluations

Program Success Examples:

CORP students experienced gains in vocabulary and comprehension at twice the rate of a control group not in the program. 3rd grade students experienced an increase of 16% in their reading comprehension scores after two years of participation in the CORP program compared to the results of children at the same age level before the CORP program was introduced. 90% of eligible teachers were certified in the Advanced CORP Methodology. (To achieve certification, teachers must not only attend all training sessions, but also must demonstrate successful use of the CORP teaching techniques in their own classrooms.)

Program Description:

A high school education is crucial for reducing poverty. Poor educational quality and extreme familial poverty lead the majority of students to drop out before the sixth grade. CoEd's Scholarship Program removes economic barriers to education and involves young people in improving their community through organized service projects. Scholarship students become leaders who will help guide their communities to a better life, beyond poverty. http://www.coeduc.org/programs/scholarships.html

Program Long-Term Success:

96% of students who complete middle school with a CoEd scholarship go on to high school. (Guatemala's high school enrollment rate is 14%). 217 Mayan youth have benefited from CoEd scholarships.
