Everyone has the power to be a Hero in their own community if they have the right tools!

You can help Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot Hero School's middle school teachers develop a democratic curriculum so all of the students of CETC can gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to shape their lives, local communities, and ultimately their world.

Hero School's Democratic Education model presents a dynamic interdisciplinary curriculum that guides student-driven, community-based projects that address genuine community needs. The school will cultivate a new generation of entrepreneurs who will be uniquely equipped to lead their communities with innovative solutions for the future. Privately contracted construction projects will provide practicum opportunities for students, income for the school, and expand awareness and practice of sustainable building. In 2018 our students, construction team and volunteers are going to use the lessons learned from building all over the world to improve infrastructure for each aldea (village) in San Juan Comalapa. By doing this, we anticipate that we will change what the public expects from its elected officials. Future politicians will have to improve their approach to seek election. Our intention is that eventually the presidency of Guatemala, and leadership globally, will be affected by this positive approach to community development.

Now is the time to get involved, make a contribution and tell all your friends and family! With your help we will create a unique curriculum that combines the knowledge of new technology, with the wisdom of our ancestors, to build critical thinking and a new generation of heroes. Join us and be a part of the change!
