Commitment to Action

Community Schools: Life Skills for Violence Prevention

Commitment by

Glasswing International

In 2015, Glasswing committed to increasing its regional network of 30 ‘community schools’ to a total of 100 public schools in Central America that are safe, have the necessary infrastructure and equipment, and provide daily opportunities through non-formal education programs that equip students with the skills they need to thrive, despite significant adversity. This three-year commitment will engage, as volunteers, teachers, parents, students, community members, and employees of corporations, proving a greater sense of empowerment, civic participation, and sustainability. Glasswing’s commitment includes three complementary components: (1) volunteer-led school improvement and rehabilitation; (2) curricular and extra-curricular clubs that develop students’ non-cognitive and life skills; and (3) coaching for families, teachers, and parents on topics, such as: student-centered learning, positive discipline, character-building, and non-violent communication. Through this commitment, Glasswing will directly benefit over 37,000 children, youth, teachers, and parents in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
