Transition Students Gearing Up for Success

dsc03211 0

The purpose of our Transition Program is to help the teenagers and young adults that grew up in one of our partner orphanages successfully evolve into productive members of Nicaraguan society.  Most of the 68 participants in our program this year are enrolled in college or vocational classes and are receiving a scholarship for tuition and basic living expenses.  This semester’s classes began in March and the students recently had an opportunity to participate in two workshops hosted by ORPHANetwork.

During the first gathering Eddy Morales, our Director in Nicaragua, set the expectations and requirements of achieving grades of 80% or better to maintain the ORPHANetwork scholarship each semester.  He also shared ON’s mission and vision with the students, and our targets for their success: walking with God, being active in a local church, giving back to others, speaking conversational English, having basic computer skills, and basic life skills.  The students were also introduced to Ana Moreno, a professor from the public university in Nicaragua, UNAN (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Nicaragua).  Ms. Moreno is volunteering her time and expertise to work with our Transition Program, and she taught the most recent workshop which focused on study strategies and techniques. We had a wonderful turnout with about 58 students attending.

Our Field Coordinator, Alvaro Rivas, serves as the leader of the Transition Program by offering support and guidance to the students. He will also be monitoring grades periodically and proactively to see when a student may be in need of a tutor.  Alvaro and Eddy both commented that the students are feeling confident that they can achieve the goals that have been set forth.  Additionally, they’re encouraged to see the students enjoying a new sense of camaraderie amongst their peers.
