We just started our tutoring classes for our high school scholarship applicants. We were excited to see that we had 18 motivated students applying this year, which is more than usual!
What would normally be a full week of classes has now been split in two; students come to CECAP three days, and the rest of the week, they have online classes. This decision was made to ensure that our students are taking the necessary safety precautions while considering that access to the internet can be limited for some of them. The students have been divided into three groups to guarantee that they keep the proper distance between each other and the teacher. They are also wearing masks, keeping good airflow in the room, and their temperature is measured and recorded before every class.
We're excited to see so many young people motivated to keep studying and graduate from high school, despite the difficulties and lack of access to educational resources that many youth faced here in rural Guatemala this year.
