Free Training Model for public school students from disadvantaged sectors of Guayas Province in Ecuador
ResumenThis study shows a model of free training for high school graduates and students of the last year of secondary from public institutes of some cities of Guayas Province in Ecuador. This is coming through a social project called “Desafío ENES” (ENES Challenge) which aims to prepare young people to take the national examination to be admitted in a public university; this test is very demanding and competitive because it is the starting point to open doors to the most prestigious campuses in the country. Although the competitiveness generates excellence, it also produces less favorable results for people who do not have the necessary knowledge. For that reason, a learning model has been implemented for the academic training of people who will take the test and they need reinforce the areas evaluated in the exam. The trainings were given by undergraduates, they are students from different engineering careers at ESPOL - Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral of Guayaquil and as volunteers of the project, they shared their knowledge and skills acquired during the development of their careers.
