In the face of the social and economic crisis in Honduras caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the aftermath of Hurricanes Eta and Iota, which struck back-to-back in November 2020, youth beneficiaries from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Empleando Futuros project have dedicated their efforts to helping those most in need of support. Through their resilience and motivation to be of help to others in times of adversity, the youth beneficiaries became heroes within their communities.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused in-person classes to be suspended in Honduras and created the need for online educational programming. To address this, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Empleando Futuros project partnered with the Ministry of Education in Honduras to offer courses in employability skills through the Youth Labor Bridging Program. Through taking the online courses and receiving support from Empleando Futuros coaches, youth beneficiaries like Estefany and Dener saw that they could build bright futures for themselves within Honduras.
