Youth Education Program

GHEI’s YEP offers supplemental classes to junior high school students in Humjibre. The classes have a significantly smaller student to teacher ratio than the students’ regular schools, a variety of materials and resources that are not commonly available, and focus on fostering active learning and critical thinking skills while helping students prepare for their critical Basic Education Certification Examination (BECE).

100% of students completing YEP and attending Senior High School, go on to attend college/university or technical training.

The BECE is the main admissions exam students must take in order to attend a secondary (senior high) or vocational school. YEP classes cover students’ core subjects, which are the focus of the BECE as well: English Language, Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies and Information Communication Technology.

Impact

Passing Rate

100% of YEP students taking the BECE have passed it since 2013.

High Pass Rate

Since 2013, more than 50% of YEP students have achieved a high passing score, which means their performance was excellent in BECE.

YEP and Beyond:

A Journey of Empowerment

YEP is an important tool and plays a significant role in designing the future of our students as successful persons. It lessens the challenges they will face and prepares them for the time after senior high school. Through YEP they gain more knowledge that opens more opportunities, allowing them to achieve better possibilities for career and personal growth.

Post Senior High School Outcome

(Cohorts 2003 - 2016)

“I have been part of the Youth Education Program for more than 10 years. I began my journey as a student first and today I am one of the teachers leading the initiative. Back then, the program helped me improve my speaking and writing skills in English. Today, I am happy and satisfied to impart knowledge that empower young minds.”
