The USG provided training to 239 English teachers and 200 students continuing English studies. Under a
USAID program, 111 high school students graduated after receiving specialized courses in English and Information Technology, and 87 percent will pursue a college degree. Twenty students were given scholarships to study in community colleges in the US. The USG offered 13 seminars on science and technology at Don Bosco University. The GOES, through the Salvadoran Institute for Professional Training (INSAFORP), invited bids for the National English for Work Program, developed in conjunction with the USG, to teach English to 4,000 participants. INSAFORP, working with the USG, trained 53 youth in basic competencies for entry-level employment, resulting in 32 job placements.
