Description

BECA aims to provide its volunteers with a challenging, transformative experience that gives an in-depth understanding of grassroots international development, underserved Central American communities, bilingual teaching strategies, and community capacity building techniques. As a result, BECA teachers develop the skills and responsibilities to be effective teachers, communicators, and leaders. Afterwards, they go on to become Fulbright scholars, micro-finance specialists, diplomats, educators, World Bank employees, non-profit executives, and law and public policy students.

Our teachers undergo an intensive 6-week teacher training in Honduras in July and August before being matched to one of our partner schools. Currently, we operate in conjunction with three K - Grade 9 schools just outside of the San Pedro Sula area in Honduras. As a requirement, each school has significant parent ownership and deep community involvement. Our model is built on a partnership between Hondurans committed to high quality, progressive education and international and Honduran volunteers interested in a truly authentic cultural immersion.
