Scholas Citizenship

Designed for high school students (or equivalent for each country), Scholas Citizenship is an educational program that will transform your view of the world.

Young people from different schools, both public and private, religious and secular, come together for 10 days in a classroom without walls to foment the culture of the encounter.


Based on our dynamics, you will identify from your personal experience those social problems that generate pain, and then build joint solutions that will positively impact your community. You will have the opportunity to get closer to the reality that surrounds you and enhance your social, civic and political commitment. You will explore the daily problems of your community from a constructive perspective, you will investigate, develop innovative proposals and work as a team to find real solutions.

The program consists of three stages
