The Gibson Soto Foundation has developed a unique program to support young women’s positive growth, prepare them to graduate with a college degree, and prepare them to integrate into a culture and life not experienced before.
It is vital to understand that poverty life and thinking are very different from those of the middle class. Education alone is not enough to provide a fulfilling and sustainable life foundation for our graduates.
Our beneficiaries have 24/7 access to La Cima staff, and there is always a psychologist on site.
We accomplish our program goals through workshops and training programs. These programs include self-love, self-esteem and confidence, communication and presentation skills, interview skills, and much more.
Our students learn English as a second language and are required to learn a second skill or talent of their desire. We see the importance of our beneficiaries participating in enjoyable programs such as music, arts, sports, and hobbies as part of a well-balanced life.
Our young women will complete a community project and an internship with our foundation or local business through our mentorship program.
To ensure our students have the academic support they need, we provide a full tutoring program powered by volunteers from our local partner universities.
The Gibson Soto Foundation works to break the cycle of poverty and achieve the sustainable development of communities through education, uplifting human beings, and generating peace and prosperity.
