children's english program (CEP)
The Foundation has partnered with a team of specialists to develop the Beyond Borders series, a set of customized English-Spanish workbooks tailored specifically to the educational needs of the children of Costalegre. Living in an area whose biggest source of employment is tourism, we consider it essential that the local children become bilingual.
Our team of volunteer teachers follow the curriculum’s natural language learning methodology to deliver biweekly English lessons to an average of 900 children. Over the course of the 2017-2018 school year, the CEP will provide over 2,000 hours of English language instruction ten local villages.
We have published three levels of workbooks and teacher's guides so far and will complete the series by July 2019, adding a new book each year until we have a specific text for each grade level.
