Our Mission

The mission of Heart in Education Teacher Outreach (HETO) is to promote high-quality learning environments in Honduras through material and intellectual support.

Strategies

We accomplish this goal by recruiting and taking Indiana teachers to Honduras several times a year on one week educational brigades to work in critically under-funded elementary, secondary and vocational schools. During the one-week brigade trip, Indiana teachers model new lessons and instructional techniques, conduct professional development workshops, and deliver much needed supplies and resources to the Honduran teachers and students.

HETO encourages Indiana teachers to include their own students in dynamic pre-trip and post-trip plans and activities, thereby bringing service learning, real-world problem solving, and cultural studies into the Indiana classroom.

We invite you to explore our website to learn how to become a HETO teacher and traveling volunteer or support our cause through monetary donations. Come work with us to help Honduran teachers and students achieve more!
