Honduras: Artists in the making – A peak over the shoulders of our woodcarvers

As you already know, the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School offers a variety of technical courses, so this time we want to show you some of the special work that is being done in the Woodcarving workshop!


Honduras: Let the school year begin!

After a 2 month holiday, the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School is buzzing full of life again. At 8am on the dot the morning group of students from all technical areas and the secondary school, flock around the sunlit school yard to listen to the director Jonhny’s welcoming speech.

Honduras: A new era begins – how the new car mechanics centre opened its doors to the public

After a lengthy building process, a fairly high initial investment and the restless search for the fitting providers, today is the day: the Lubricentro Peña Blanca is celebrating its official opening!

Honduras: The Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School goes to Paraguay

or: What first time travelers took away from our annual “Education that pays for itself” conference

Yes, it is this time a year again…not only time to dress up for Halloween, but also to jump on a plane and take part in the Annual Teach a Man to Fish conference; after last year’s “Education that pays for itself” conference had brought together people in Tanzania, the 2013 edition was launched last week in Paraguay.

Honduras: What do students at the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School think?

You are finally getting constant blog updates from our Honduras project again!
And I – I, that is Christine, the former Tourism Officer at La Bastilla Technical Agricultural High School in Nicaragua – already had the pleasure of welcoming visitors to Honduras in my first month here: our sister organisation Fundación Paraguaya paid a visit to the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School. During their visit Mariane, Luis and me also had the chance to sit down with a group of students from two areas to talk about what they think about the school.

OR:  How an Austrian with a slight Nicaraguan accent spent 2 weeks at the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School

After having lived in the wonderful Nicaraguan mountains for 10 months and working on our La Bastilla Technical Agricultural High School, I have had the chance to visit our Honduras project, set in an equally breathtaking surrounding: The Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School, as faithful followers of the Honduras blog already know, is a technical school that has been running their programme for about 15 years.

Honduras: New students at the Tech School

At the Escuela Tecnica Dr Stephen Youngberg the new school year started first Monday in February. And even though many of the students continue their studies from last year in their respective fields, a new school year also means new students at the school. There are 157 students enrolled this year, 72 in the technical areas and 85 in the Educatodos programme (primary and secondary education). Of the 72 students enrolled on the technical courses 40 of them are new at the school, starting their technical education.

Honduras: Preparing for a new school year

A new school year is about to start at the Escuela Técnica Vocacional Dr. Stephen Youngberg, and both school administration and business managers have already been back for two weeks. As the new school year will involve many changes for staff and students, all employees are working hard with their preparations in these weeks leading up to the new school year. The school’s business plan was written last year, but it has taken some time for staff to become familiar with it, and the school has been facing some challenges to implement the plan.

Honduras: November at the tech school

November has in many ways been a quiet month at the school, as the students started their Christmas holidays in mid November.
