Our Mission

Partners for Humanitarian Action, Service, and Education International (PHASE I) has as a primary goal the development of vocational education programs and services in Latin American countries.

The philosophy is simple:  A person without job skills will not be able to acquire and maintain employment that will support themselves and their families.

To meet this goal, PHASE I seeks to partner with non-profit/faith-based organizations that have vocational education as a primary goal for assisting the impoverished to become self-reliant.  PHASE I can provide these organizations with the following:

1.     Expertise in developing and implementing vocational education programs;

2.     Acquisition of student curriculum materials and instructor manuals; and

3.     Assistance in developing a vocational evaluation and assessment program to help applicants determine which programs are best suited to their individual interests, skills, and abilities.

The Vocational Evaluation and Assessment Program is a multi-faceted program that helps program participants determine the program best suited to their individual skills and interest. It assesses their basic skills (reading, writing, and arithmetic), their vocational interest, and their physical ability to perform the tasks associated with that interest.

Program Areas of Interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Auto-mechanics
  • Auto-body Repair
  • Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration
  • Building Trades
  • Welding
  • Sewing
  • Computer Skills
  • Culinary Arts
