PROGRAMS

Our core program that funds education for over 60 recipients aged 5 to 22.  The government education system is struggling to meet the most basic needs of youth here on Roatan. Families lack resources to purchase uniforms and school supplies. SOL works to ensure the kids in our program are afforded the opportunity of an education regardless of finances. Programs include:

  • Scholarships for private school tuition based on merit and need

  • Backpack and school supplies 

  • Uniform assistance

  • Transportation

  • Tutoring assistance

  • Nursing and medical scholarships

SOL provides opportunities for boys and girls to be a part of something larger than themselves, through supporting existing programs and establishing new youth programs.

Baseball: We constructed a youth baseball field in West End, providing a home for several Little League teams.

Volleyball: Supporting both indoor and beach volleyball for many years, our youth have traveled to the mainland and internationally, representing Honduras. In 2015, an official beach volleyball court was added to the John J Woods Field of Dreams complex in West End.

Soccer, Track & Field, and Basketball: SOL is steadily increasing our support of these sports through travel scholarships, equipment, uniforms, and organizational assistance.

Havey Learning Center
 

In late 2016, we opened our Havey Learning Center within the Center for Community Growth, a partnership with BICA (Bay Islands Conservation Association).  The Community Center is where all the magic happens!   Our center is staffed with a psychotherapist and a full time tutor to help the youth in any way possible.  The center provides a safe place to play, learning enrichment, arts, education, counseling and a positive environment. It is also home to our SOL Roatan office and BICA's offices and laboratory.

GREEN SPACE
 

 

Our newest project, the Green Space is located directly behind our Center. Beautifully defined by two majestic mango trees, the space is home to our ever-evolving recycled playground and our teaching gardens. We are working on our repurposed trash planters and perimeter wall. Maybe we'll even get a tree house eventually.

HAPPY TUMMIES & JR CHEF

Our food program focuses on providing nutritious meals for breakfast and lunch 5 days a week.  We have served over 100k meals to date!  Happy Tummies lead to Active Minds.

Volunteer chefs run our Junior chef program on Wednesdays.  The Junior Chef program teaches children the basics of healthy creative cooking (and some fancy stuff too). Our kids prepare the week's meals and learn about nutrition and food preperation and safety.
