A. CTF Apprenticeship Program
Located in southern Guatemala, the CTF Apprenticeship is a 3 month term specifically geared to those who feel called to a life of mission work. Students are involved in hands on work within Central America including: street ministry, prayer and intercession, working with the poor, working in the community, evangelism, outreach trips and various other aspects of missionary life. Students also receive biblical and practical training from local missionary staff.
B. HEROES® LIFE
Everyone has gifts, abilities and a desire to succeed. For 12 weeks local junior high and high school students begin to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Heroes is an experiential course that deals with self-esteem, self-image, self-dignity and how students can be change agents in their world. Students are beginning to impact their communities and their world. CTF partners with the Heroes program to see youth trained and motivated to change their world.
C. Vivivendo Héroes (Living Heroes)
The Heroes course has been translated into Spanish and is now being taught in Central America. CTF trains nationals as Heroes instructors to impact Central American youth. Since 2013, over 200 instructors have been trained in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua to impact over 20,000 youth. They are learning to use their gifts and abilities to change their lives and those around them. We also have a Heroes Obstacle Course to train youth in schools, churches, and the community in the Heroes principles in an interactive way.
