Education

Convinced as we are that Education is the best tool for future development, we at Fundación Prosegur promote initiatives that seek to reinforce the training of adults and children in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Talent Scholarships

With the aim of contributing to the formation of new generations, the Prosegur Foundation launched the Talent Scholarship program in 2008: a commitment to academic excellence, effort and talent, both for Prosegur employees and their children.

This internal project is adapted to the needs of each country: aid for children of school age, university age, for the realization of technical studies and for their own workers who combine their work with training.

The program is currently implemented in Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Singapore and Uruguay and has delivered more than 12,000 grants to the study, since it was launched.

 

Environmental education

Our initiatives, developed in Spain, put the focus on raising awareness among the new generations about the importance of sustainable development, the correct management of waste and care for the environment.

With this idea, Playa Limpia is launched in 2014 to raise awareness among the little ones about the importance of keeping the coasts clean and the impact that the garbage we generate has on them. This awareness-raising work was reinforced in 2015 with Campo Limpio, an action aimed at the rural environment in which different recycling workshops and nature tours were held.

Planeta Limpio starts up in Santander in 2016, together with our partner LEGO® Education. The objective: that students between 8 and 12 years old learn about the responsible care of their environment, through new technologies and developing 21st century competences. The project has a phase in the classroom, the resolution of an online challenge on an environmental problem of its environment and closes with recreational activities open to the public during the summer months. In 2018 the initiative has moved to La Coruña.
 

Summer camps

With the aim of promoting the training of the children of Prosegur employees in Chile, Spain and Portugal during the summer, we promote the organization of different summer camps aimed at language reinforcement, sports practice, science or contact with nature.

Since it was launched in 2007, this initiative has evolved to focus on new topics that help students develop 21st century skills and acquire knowledge for their professional future.

 

other initiatives

We collaborate with the Spanish Committee Foundation of United World Colleges to facilitate access to young Spanish students to their International Baccalaureate program in one of their outstanding centers. In addition, within the framework of this collaboration, a Colombian student from our Piecitos Colorados program has graduated from the Móstar College (Bosnia-Herzegovina).

Likewise, we support the Fundación Empieza por Educar (ExE) program that trains young Spanish graduates as teachers and agents of change. In addition, these teachers have the opportunity to travel during the summer to Latin America to work as volunteers in the Piecitos Colorados schools and share their methodology.

The Prosegur Foundation also promotes from its origins the training of young talents of the Reina Sofía School of Music through the granting of scholarships.
