Service Learning is always a key component of a school’s curriculum. Juan Pablo began his own service project giving back to his community in Jocotenango, Guatemala; when he began tutoring children out of his parents’ garage. A passion/service project has now evolved into a full-on accredited school with a self-sustaining campus.

Join CNN Hero Juan Pablo Romero Fuentes, as he shares how he empowers the student body to create their own initiatives that sustain their school and teach entrepreneurial skills.   Learn how ‘Los Patojos’ run their own bakery, travel agency, agriculture program and performing arts studio.  Learn how Juan Pablo has made global connections by bringing his students to the forefront and at the same time, creating future global contributors who are inspired to change the world.
