STEAM, psychoeducational, English, literacy and ICT classes
On May 5th we had a recreational activity to celebrate Children's Day. It was a very special day in which Space Jump and Butcher came together so that the boys and girls of the Bibliocasa could have a unique experience full of fun and joy.
Between July 25 and 31, Entrepreneurship Week was held, a space that sought, through an immersive experience, for young people in group C to spend a day with leading professionals in the fields of their interest (medicine, technology, football, criminology, Parkour), who spoke to them about the opportunities and challenges of professional life. This not only provided them with the opportunity to gain practical knowledge and clarity about their career paths, but also established itself as a great opportunity to inspire them to work towards their dreams.
“I was a doctor for a day and I learned a lot (...) a teacher, I never imagined that they would let me come in to see a surgery (...), my family was very happy and they told me that studying medicine is the right thing to do.” "What I want, to go ahead and fulfill my dream."
During the first three Saturdays of the month of July 2023, Bibliocasa students had the opportunity to attend English classes taught by professor Maria Isabel Irurita, Educambio mentor and Director of the Master's Degree in Management for Social Innovation at Icesi. In the classes they were able to learn three songs in English, share with renowned musicians, play instruments such as the guitar, guasa and cununos, and have an immersive experience in English.
On Saturday, October 14, 2023, a mental health day was held in conjunction with the Psychological Care Center of the Icesi University (CAPsi), which was consolidated as a listening space in which students and their families, as well as people from the community were able to speak with psychology students in recent semesters, especially those that cause them pain or concern.
On Tuesday, October 17, 2023, as an activity proposed by the psychoeducational and technology classes, the trip to the Icesi University was made with the aim of bringing students between 13 and 17 years old, from group C, to an environment academic that inspired them to continue working for their life project. During the visit, the students were able to tour the university facilities, see the recording studios and speak with the person in charge of the university's financial support office, who told them about the possibilities of financing and applying for scholarships.
On November 4, 2023, the gymkhana was held, a space for celebration and meeting focused on strengthening the general well-being and teamwork of the students. This day, which included the participation of Infinitek Paris collaborators, allowed us to strengthen community ties, as well as carry out the delivery of gifts donated by Globant as part of the celebration of Children's Day.
On Saturday, November 11, 2023, the wellness day led by the Educambio and Infinitek Paris team took place. This was a space focused on promoting self-love and self-care of boys, girls and their mothers or caregivers, who participated in relaxation activities, meditation and application of facial masks donated by Infinitek.
On Thursday, November 9, 2023, the trip to Manitoba took place with the aim of giving students the opportunity to explore and understand the entrepreneurship processes, from the conception of an idea to the materialization of a solid business plan. During the visit, the students had the opportunity to tour the facilities and learn from one of the founders of Manitoba, Ignacio Llano, the history of one of the largest companies in southwestern Colombia.
