We train young actors of social transformation
The Fondacio América Training Institute offers intercultural and innovative training in the areas of ethical leadership and social project entrepreneurship.
A training designed to enable young people, with their conviction, to contribute to the social transformation of the continent, from their own communities of life.
In recent years, Latin America and the Caribbean has undergone many political changes and developed strongly in a short time. Unfortunately, this development has been very uneven across the continent, including in Chile. In fact, 102 million people, or a total of 10.2% of the population, still live in extreme poverty (ECLAC, January 2019).
IFF América was born in 2014 in Santiago de Chile to fight against these inequalities and allow Latin American youth to be perfectly trained to become actors of social change. Thus, IFF America fulfills its mission based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Development Program, through Goal #4 – Quality Education.
IFF America aims to provide these young people with a strong social vocation, the training that allows them to carry out social projects based on their own conviction of leadership.
Through this experience, they will be able to actively discern their vocation, acquire the skills, leadership and project management tools, to create in their country of origin projects with strong social impact responding to local needs or to integrate social structures. existing. IFF America facilitates an experience of personal knowledge that allows each student to take charge of their life with a protagonist attitude.
