Complete Core Facilities: Donations will be used to complete finishing touches on the main training center building. Additionally, we will install bathroom facilities, set up Extollo’s office, create a lunch preparation and dining area, secure equipment storage and build a guard station.
Facilitate Q1 Enrollment: Funds also support first quarter training classes and help build new futures for 40 hard working students. Qualifying students will benefit from Extollo’s job placement programs and may help rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Matthew, build an elementary school or complete road repairs on La Gonave.
Getting the Extollo Training Center up and running is just the beginning. Our larger vision is to build out the entire 5-acre Extollo Training Center campus. The image above identifies the areas we will focus on first. The complete facility will include additional vocational training buildings and guest housing.
The 4,000 square-foot training center building includes a shop area, classroom space, offices, and equipment storage and accommodates classes of up to 20 students at a time, with plenty of room for hands-on learning.
Training programs will be expanded to include Level II classes and paid apprenticeships, which build advanced trade skills. Trainers and administrators will receive instructor and business management training. Learn More about our long term goals and see how you can be a part of this great endeavor.
The campus will have guest houses for visiting staff and volunteers.
