UNal student will be prosperity agent in Chile

Andrés Manrique was chosen as one of 20 students which will represent Colombia in Santiago (Chile) to share education initiatives and promote cultural exchange

Bogotá D. C., 11 de agosto de 2016Agencia de Noticias UN-

Andrés Manrique León, Department of Psychology student.

More than a thousand students have benefitted from the “Applicants” initiative.

The youngsters receive classes from students from other universities.

40% of the students in the project are admitted to public universities.

In Chile he will share the experiences of a voluntary program in Colombia.

The program hopes to increase cultural exchange and cooperation among countries.

The Universidad Nacional de Colombia (UNal) Department of Psychology student will be part of the Prosperity Makers Program, an initiative of Heart for Change Foundation and the Presidential Agency for Colombian International Cooperation (APC-Colombia) which hopes to increase cooperation among both countries. 

To access the program Manrique had to compete with other 288 people including 8 UNal students; only 20 applicants in Colombia classified. 

In order to be considered Manrique presented the project, “Aspirantes” (Candidates) which has been in place since 2010 and consists of preparing youngsters of Bogotá to present the UNal admissions test and other high-impact test such as the one known as Saber 11. 

This is a group of students with common interests, which is to become prepared, learn and teach to strengthen the academic weaknesses of high school graduates when taking admission tests.

Back in the year 2011 they had only 20 people, then 60 during the third quarter of that year and for 2012 they had reached 200 youngsters which hoped to be part of the project. “We observed that our initiative was transforming and impacting young people around the city,” he said. 

Now they need to pass a selection process and take classes provided by UNal students and other institutions. They receive this free of charge and in a collaborative environment and at the same time encourage their autonomy capabilities. 

The people that receive classes are chosen thanks to certain qualities such as teamwork, responsibility, commitment, environmental impact and time availability. 

During the last calling, they had 600 applicants and 60 were admitted. Of these 40% finally gets to be admitted to UNal while others take the ICFES test and go to the Universidad Distrital and Universidad Pedagógica. 

The program has been approved by the UNal Institutional Welfare as an autonomous study group and is in the process of being subscribed to the Chamber of Commerce to become a foundation. 

The summoning organizations were interested in “Candidates” and hope this experience to be shared in Chile in order to help education dynamics in this South American country. 

“Education in Chile is also a bit questioned due to admission options. In Colombia there are close to 12 million youngsters which represent 25% of the country, but only 1% has access to a higher education, therefore it is difficult to comply with the right to education,” he said. 

Manrique will showcase how the voluntary experiences work in Colombia and show Chilean youngsters what is achievable with dynamics which impact society. He will also be part of a local and leadership education program 

“Among the goals is to exploit my capabilities to cause greater impact and strengthen the relationships with Chile. We hope to broadcast this experience and increase cultural exchange,” added Manrique.
