The Epidemic At Hand
Smart, ambitious, valuable minds are being left behind for no reason other than their heritage.
- Educational opportunities are one thing, but supporting students on their journey into the workforce is a process all on its own. Depending on their circumstances, securing impactful work can be near impossible and in turn, deters a desire for education, to begin with.
- Access to quality education that is applicable to a wide range of global work opportunities is scarce in low-income regions. Yet, where there is access, there are economic and social barriers to utilizing these resources.
- Investing in one student at a time, with no supplemental resources geared towards the community, will pose an uphill battle for future generations. It takes a village to help a village.
Our Unique Approach
Merezco In a Nutshell
Comprehensive Support: By walking each student through the process of earning admission to world-class universities around the world, we are removing the most paralyzing hurdles that accompany the foreign student exchange process. This calculated assistance empowers students to believe in their potential and to realize their capabilities. Additionally, the simultaneous exposure to a developed society serves to influence their perspective and contribution to a trusting community.
Work Entrance Opportunities: Once equipped with all the necessary knowledge and working skills, our students are guided through the process of earning a position within our network of Employer Partners. From applications and interviews to establishing positive relationships with employers and beyond, the Career Entrance Phase provides graduates with a tangible connection to utilizing and further developing the skills obtained in their time with Merezco.
Long-Term Growth Plans: Rather than churn out as many students as possible and then leave them to their own devices, our program makes intentional investments into developing the societal standards of their home regions. Once placed into a working opportunity, graduates commit to providing similar support and sponsorship of future Merezco candidates, thus emphasizing the importance of developing trust with their own communities and sharing the success so that others are inclined to reach for more.
