Community service and volunteer activities are part of the Central Honduras Education leadership formation and development. Lead scholars, Jose Enrique and Carlos Daniel, planned and led a reforestation project in the hillsides of Zambrano. 190 trees were planted by scholars and invited guests. If you are planning for a year, plant rice. If you are planning for a decade, plant trees. If you are planning for a lifetime, educate.
The mid year all scholar meeting was carried out in July. Students gathered in the village of Guangololo, where two new students have joined the scholar group. Adriana and Heydi hosted the event, where parents and students dialogued and planned for the coming months.

Another well organized meeting was put on by Saira and Andrea in Decemeber, 2015. Several academic awards were given out, and everyone had a chance to share their experiences and engage in a few fun activities.
The Fund celebrated its 10th Anniversary in July! All current scholars and parents were invited to a tenth anniversary celebration in the city of Valle de Angeles. The event was planned by the Scholar Coordinators. Scholar participation was a highlight, as students participated in a traditional dance exhibition, shared testimonials of their experiences, and presented information on the Fund. The president of the Fund, Aaron Banas, and keynote speaker Luis Estrada (Peace Corps Regional Training Director) addressed those in attendance. Additionally, several students were recognized for their outstanding academic performance.
