Our Schools

Mentores Solidarios works with 12 secondary schools in Managua, Masaya and Granada and Diriamba. We maintain a close working relationship with these schools' administrators to facilitate the payment process, deliver the students’ grades, and proper follow-up to the students that we are sponsoring.

We use strict selection criteria to choose the schools we partner with. The main things we look for are: academic excellence, great reputation, availability of English classes and internet-equipped computer labs. We also require that the schools assign one person to coordinate our program's activities and serve as a liaison between Mentores Solidarios and the school.
