Breaking the English Language Barrier to Employment (BELBE) Round I
From November 2015 to January 2016, 34 youth benefited from the first round of Jeune Espoir's BELBE program sponsored by the US Embassy in Guinea. The beneficiaries were divided between two courses (L2 and L3) that were taught at JE's headquarters (Centre Espoir) by two certified TESOL teachers using the New Bridges and other practical learning materials. 88% of the participants completed the program and each got over 70%, the minimum required grade. The images and videos on the right reflect the achievements of this project as they display the classes, the project-based learning from the classes, and the graduation ceremony. The Public Affairs Section of the Embassy of the United States was pleased to attend the graduation ceremony of the youth that studied English under this project.
