Mary Ann Arizaga

PLE 2020

“[At YYGS] I could develop meaningful connections that motivated me to explore the realities of other countries, finding the value of collaborative learning and peer discussion which was something I was experiencing for the first time.

I started a social venture that brings college students and young leaders to help children from public elementary schools to receive a virtual education (during this time of the pandemic).

Proyecto Pasaporte aims to empower Latin American young students through education. Our pilot program, which is currently being developed, is designed to help us understand how to better create multidimensional programs that impact student learning. We aim to be a non-profit organization that launches zero-cost virtual educational programs for students from public schools.

We are currently formed by a team of thirty-five people from Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Chile, and Venezuela.
