Mecenas Program

Culture makes man grow. However, culture does not extend its essence to all alike. The mecenas program seeks to expand culture from traditional places, to non-traditional ones. We intend to increase interest in the various areas of knowledge to anyone who has the motivation to do so.

How does it work?

The resources collected in the various cycles of talks, finance the implementation of the same cycle in non-traditional places, the latter being low resourced or remote places where instances of this type are not common.

We have developed a mechanism to transfer resources from those who can afford culture, to those who -for various reasons (not only economic)- cannot.

The needs of some,
satisfy the needs of others

Basically we put together two entities. On the one hand, the whole community of avid consumers of lectures and courses, who are willing and able to pay for continuing studies. On the other, there are all those who want to access to lectures and courses, surround themselves with culture and learning, but because of various reasons cannot access them.

This way, we create a networks of students, teachers and organizations that allow us to reach a non-traditional audience.


We offer a catalog of talks that explore different areas of culture, such as philosophy, literature, the arts and technology.

The course fee does not only finance the teacher of the course, but also the cycle of free lectures in non-traditional, such as municipalities, low-income schools and community organizations instances. In other words, each course you take, is taught to someone who can't afford it.

Upon completion of the course, students receive a diploma issued by Hegel Foundation and a letter to the Mecenas to certify that the cycle has been completed. That is our commitment as Foundation.


Companies, Schools y Municipalties

The mecenas program requires partners that allow us to contact potential students and the space to teach courses. Usually they are businesses, schools and municipalities, since they have the minimum infrastructure for courses an hour at least once a week. However, we are open to suggestions different to these proposals.

Given the disparity of demand in traditional and non-traditional locations, some cycles of lectures are subject to availability of teachers and the course enrollment minimum (where 10 people minimum, 20 people maximum).

Technology creates opportunities

Technology allows us to develop our creativity and intellect and presents a solid way to increase our economic expectations. Moreover, the process of technology development is usually a process of collaboration, where our differences matter very little and where what is truly important trascends, the functionality of the project.

Under this approach, Hegel Foundation wants to incorporate young people to the technology revolution. Strengthen them in their diversity and creativity and prepare them for the social problems of the future. Such learning should be expanded and be available to anyone who wants to learn. This way, we make a contribution to society by empowering the future citizens of a collaborative and thinking community.

Introduction to HTML and CSS

In a course of 5 sessions, students will learn about the various functions of programming languages. Then we'll see indepth HTML and CSS languages to learn, by experimentation, how to create their own websites

Robotics, Arduino and Raspberry Pi

In a course of 7 sessions, students will learn about the Arduino and Raspberry Pi microcomputers. We will see practical examples to understand the potential of these microcomputers. We finish with a project in which children are participants.
