everis foundation expands its Pulsar Program to Peru
In the program each mentor directs and guides the development of the adolescent, creating a commitment between the two people, by sharing experiences and insights that will contribute to the personal and professional growth of both the mentor and mentee.
everis foundation has started its “Púlsar Program” in Peru, an initiative that connects young girls, between 15 and 18, to a network of women that stand out in different fields to develop their potential, achieve their professional aspirations, focusing on their talent (by discovering and strengthening it), and carry on with their training.
The group of women who take part in the Program as mentors come from different areas: education, business, the arts, sciences, etc... They are aware of the importance of reducing the social gender gap as a driver of economic and social development in our society. The aim is to continue promoting the economic and social development of our society thanks to women who want to inspire girls through their own experiences.
Peru is the second Latinamerican country in wich the Foundation launches the Program. This year is the third edition in Spain, involving more schools, more girls and more mentors. Intervention methodology is based on learning by doing, in that way, girls can be masters of their own destiny. Our methodology is oriented towards encouraging curiosity, exploration, discovery, interaction and the creation of content, as well as the reflection and connection of this way of learning with the day-to-day of the girls.
During the program, the girls in collaboration with their mentors, work on competences and in each session they work on a specific challenge that guides the overall program plan, such as personal and social leadership skills, brainstorming and selection of ideas, autonomy and personal initiative, communication skills, assumption and risk assessment and work organization. In this first peruvian edition, six mentors and six teenage girls from a public school of Lima are participating.
The program, which promotes the inclusion of girls through the mentorship of female leaders in various spheres of society, will now benefit, in addition to kids from public schools, those associated to the social institution. Furthermore, all training and mentoring meetings will take place digitally.
How to fly a drone, how to design an app or how to create your own video game will be some of the topics that will be worked on with the children from July 7 to 16.
This activity will take place online on June 26th, at 16:00, with the help of volunteer trainers from the Foundation.
The jury recognised the project for its street cleaning system which, through artificial intelligence and machine learning, detects, classifies and collects rubbish from the streets.
