This is the third of three speaker events Belize 2020 is sponsoring in collaboration with Saint Louis University's Atlas Week. Come join the conversation on critical issues affecting our global community.

Improving Education through Scholarships: The Saint Louis University and Belize Partnership
Location: Busch Student Center 253B
No tickets or advance registration required.

During this event we will highlight the educational aspect of the Belize 2020 Project and Saint Louis University educational partnership.

Belize 2020 Project is a partnership between Belize City, Belize and Saint Louis University. This relationship seeks to bridge the learning gap in our schools. The partnership empowers and enables the Belizean teachers and students to become leaders in their community. The Belizean teachers are the strongest link between the students and the surrounding community. The teachers are equipped with the knowledge to build a better future for the students through this partnership.

This partnership has grown through the training of teachers in Special Education: Learning Disability. Presently two teachers are attending Saint Louis University in the School of Education in the graduate program. Rose Mes recently completed her master’s in special education with the emphasis of learning disabilities. She is currently a learning consultant in at Our Lady of Guadalupe and working with her students in Belize.
