In collaboration with education and industry partners across Latin America and the Caribbean, EDC creates basic education and workforce development programs that are relevant and tailored to respond to community needs.

Our basic education programs use interactive audio instruction—a concept we pioneered—to reach learners in settings that are both remote and lacking in necessary resources. Our workforce development programs prepare young people for available market opportunities, and we design and implement evidence-based interventions to offer young people a new, more positive course.
