Life Skills & Leadership Training and Extra Activities


On the weekends, Friends of FORMA scholarship students attend training in skills that will prepare them to meet the challenges of the future. Students participate in both classroom settings and field trips to cover lessons on DSC_0643personal finance, vocational skills,  nutrition and healthy lifestyles, personal counseling, weekly tutoring sessions and other practical skills. It is exactly these additional lessons that make Forjanado Mi Mañana (FORMA) a unique and holistic educational program. The FORMA IMG_0080-1program follows students through their basic, daily education in the public or private school system, then enhances their training and preparation with essential life lessons.






Friends of FORMA funding provides the means for our scholarship students to receive that little bit of extra that goes such a long way.
