Where children learn to dream and dream to learn


Victor's Vision's four core programs have been designed to provide impoverished students with the resources, support and guidance necessary to pursue higher education as a means to escape poverty. Students begin working with Victor's Vision in the 2nd grade and continue through college graduation. Victor's Vision classes are capped at an 8:1 student, teacher ratio so that each student receives the individualized attention they need to grow and succeed. Through this model, we believe that any student can pursue and achieve their dreams through higher education.

Through Victor's Vision's after-school programming, underserved youth receive three extra hours of schooling, five days a week in four different subjects beginning in the second grade. Each of Victor's Vision's university certified teachers works with five to ten students to help them with their language arts (reading and writing), math, science and character development. Part of each class is dedicated to homework help, ensuring that the students keep up on their school assignments. The rest of each session is focused on a supplemental curriculum which is designed to help the students catch up on the material that is missing from their public school education but necessary to pursue a university education.


Field Trips

Field Trips

Every year, Victor's Vision students are given the opportunity to participate in three field trips. These experiences include a day trip to Piura, and weekend trips to Chiclayo and Huancabamba, about four hours from Chulucanas. The goal of the field trips is to give students opportunities to broaden their perspective on the world around them and explore areas outside of their community. Victor's Vision firmly believes that such experiences are fundamental in forming well-rounded, university-prepared students.


Nutrition

Nutrition

Living in deep poverty, many Victor's Vision students suffer from malnutrition. In order to ensure that students receive the nutrients necessary to learn and grow, Victor's Vision provides its students with one extra balanced meal every day. Victor's Vision students also learn about the importance of proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles through their academic classes.


Parent Workshop

Parent Workshop

Victor's Vision understands that parental support is necessary for student success. While Victor's Vision parents dropped out of school on average by the 6th grade and hold similar expectations for their children, Victor's Vision works with its parents to change such expectations. In addition to signing a contract committing parents to invest in their child's education and take an active role in their schooling, all parents must also attend monthly parent workshops. At these


At these workshops, Victor's Vision staff and families address issues such as education, domestic abuse, and child labor. The workshops also give parents a safe space to discuss topics that are important to them and openly brainstorm ways to support their children.

“Honestly, as a father, Victor’s Vision is a blessing to my family and my son because it has allowed him and us to believe in a better future for our family.”
