“We know that the educational system is not guaranteeing opportunities for all boys and girls and that many of them finish school without sufficient learning. But we also know that all children can and deserve to learn, and that is why we are looking for the new generation of leaders who can put yourself at the service of your students for a year and a half and then dedicate one’s entire life to building a more just system,” he said. Veronica Cipriotaexecutive director of Enseñá por Argentina and graduate of the program in 2015.

Since its creation in 2011, the Collective Leadership Program has benefited more than 150,000 students and has had the participation of more than 400 professionals dedicated to improving education, reported from the NGO.

Upon completion of the program, graduates will have access to a wide network of professionals at a national and international level, thanks to the association with the network Teach For All, present in 62 countries. Currently, 80% of Enseñá por Argentina alumni continue to be linked to the educational field in various areas such as teaching, public policy, social innovation and educational leadership, the organization indicated in a statement.

The program develops a theoretical-practical experience with more than 400 hours of training, including mentors and personalized coaching. Additionally, participants perform docents practices in the classroom and receive a financial incentive for those hours of pedagogical practice. This model aims to enhance the professional and personal development of each participant.

Program activities will begin with an initial training seminar in August 2024 and will extend for 18 months.
