Support “Learn by Doing” Education at the Entrepreneurship Technical High School in Nicaragua.
The high school, entering into its 3rd year, is one of Opportunity Nicaragua’s innovative programs which serves 180 students in grades 7-9. The only high school in Nicaragua that provides both a high school diploma and technical vocation degree in Sustainable Tourism or Agri-Business. This school is adding 1 grade each year until it will be fully operational in 2016. Join us as we help the high school grow and prepare students in the country’s 2 leading job sectors with great potential – agric-business and eco-tourism with hands on experience working with local businesses.
Entrepreneurship High School’s Highlights from 2013:
- Entrepreneurship is the only high school in Nicaragua providing BOTH a high school diploma and a Technical Vocational Certificate to students
- 92% of students are working at grade level in all grades…this compares with the Nicaraguan average of only 60% of students at grade level.

- Students participate in business plan competitions each year to develop their entrepreneurial skills and thinking!
