Higher education institutions in Armenia, Paraguay, Rwanda and South Sudan will be partnering with universities in the United States to promote gender equality and women’s leadership through a new program organized by the U.S. Under the Women’s Leadership Program, USAID said in a March 21 press release, these partnerships will promote and develop curricula and opportunities for women in business, agriculture, and education in the targeted countries, thus supporting key national and local development goals to foster advancement of women and girls as articulated in USAID’s Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy, released in March 2012.
With funding from USAID totaling approximately $8.75 million, HED will manage the partnerships — one each in Armenia, Paraguay and South Sudan, and two in Rwanda.
Paraguay: University of Florida and National University of Asuncion (UNA) will support national and local development goals that promote gender equality by nurturing alliances among civil society and the public and private sectors to advance women’s leadership and employability skills in the agricultural sector.
Rwanda (Education): University of California Los Angeles and Kigali Institute of Education will foster strategies that promote gender awareness in classrooms through targeted outreach and recruitment programs, institutional capacity building, and gender-sensitive curriculum and teaching approaches. South Sudan: Indiana University, in partnership with Virginia Tech University, the University of Juba, Upper Nile University, and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science, and Technology in South Sudan, will promote gender equality and female empowerment by creating a supportive environment for women to pursue careers in secondary and higher education. Many partnership activities are well under way, therefore the duration of each will vary between two-and-a-half years to three years, USAID said.
Vocational Technical EducationThe Vocational Technical Studies Program at both Plymouth South and Plymouth North High Schools represents the best that education has to offer. This course is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and understanding of today’s complex and ever changing automobiles in order to obtain entry-level positions as automobile service technicians.
This course of study offers students the opportunity to develop skills in the use of hand and power tools commonly used in the building trades. The Computer Science Program teaches how to use computers to make the world work as it does. Plymouth South High School is a Massachusetts State accredited licensed Cosmetology School. The Culinary Arts program offers an intense curriculum that provides training in the techniques of food preparation.
The Plymouth South High School Preschool Program is aimed at providing a quality learning experience. The Electrical program includes fundamental studies in electrical equipment, circuits and installations as it pertains to commercial and residential wiring.
The Metal Fabrication program provides students with the opportunity to learn the proper use of hand and power tools, burning equipment and fabrication machinery used in the production of metal components. Plumbing is a growing, highly professional trade that is very important to the health and well-being of society. Students will learn how to climb the ladder of success in their personal and professional lives with this Multimedia Pathway Unit.
These partnerships offer a meaningful and important opportunity to ensure women are empowered and advance in economies and societies globally,” said Carla Koppell, USAID senior coordinator for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Each partnership is focusing on advancing education in a specific sector area, and gender equity awareness is woven into the process. Hands-on training will be provided through mock-ups and training aids, including on-site work experiences.
Emphasis is placed on identifying and applying OSHA health and safety regulations and following practices used to avoid on-the-job accidents.

The CAD program in the Technical Studies department at Plymouth South High School incorporates computer applications that are currently being used in Engineering and Architectural Firms today. Students enrolling in the Cosmetology Program at PSHS will be instructed in all areas required for licensing by the State Board of Cosmetology. Creativity is greatly encouraged in the shop while basic, classical and modern techniques of food preparation are taught daily. It is also an opportunity for high school students who are interested in early childhood development and education to experience an interactive, hands-on understanding of children. This course is designed for individuals interested in entry level positions in the electrical field. Graphic Design incorporates the elements of design, typography and color theory utilizing Adobe Creative Suites programs to create artistic term projects, logos, advertisements, posters, brochures and more.

The program is designed to provide students with the highest quality of hands-on instruction available. Students will gain both insight and experience with complex engine components and accessories, as well as intricate electronics and automotive computer systems.
Students begin by learning use of stationary power equipment and portable tools on various small projects. The Marine Tech program is a comprehensive course of study which will include technical skills that are necessary to diagnose and repair marine systems including outboards (two and four stroke), outdrives and their components. These programs are the most current and popular software packages and are the industry standards. This might be making a robot move something from one end of a room to another, it might be making a calculation which saves someone’s life in a medical ward, or it could be creating a whole new world through building a computer system. Their textbook training, along with practice on manikins and the required amount of time on actual salon clients, will give them the knowledge essential to become an entry level Cosmetologist.
Students apply theory and concepts learned in the classroom to the highly supervised, full-service preschool housed in Plymouth South High School. The program offers a comprehensive training and preparation for the journeyman’s electrical exam.
It is estimated that in the next decade 350,000 new workers in the trade area will be needed. This MPU comes with an Interactive Teacher's Resource Guide containing a lesson plan and a variety of worksheets, activities, notes and projects. Automotive Technology students will also be exposed to small engine repair and maintenance.
Additional areas of coverage will include basic ship geometry, fairing of fiberglass, spray painting, and welding as it applies to the marine field.

The software that is introduced to the CAD students includes Auto CAD (2D), Rhinoceros (3D wire frame), Inventor & Sketch Up (solid modeling) and other pertinent software titles found in industry related fields. The Computer Science Program at Plymouth South High   School gives you an opportunity to enter this exciting field.

Opportunities within the program include internships, cooperative education assignments, job placement, licensure in selected programs, and admission to both two and four year colleges.Our vocational technical studies graduates are attending some of the top colleges and technical institutes in the country.
Since the marine shop provides services to the community, students also provide trailer repair, hull waxing and detailing to privately owned watercraft. Along with a well-rounded professional presence, the student will be instructed in all aspects of the field. Students enhance their skills with an active off-campus program, which provides real world experiences in the community.
Digital Photography composition and editing will be taught to create a successful photography portfolio.
By developing and managing projects students design themselves; the classroom culture generates innovative and critical thinkers prepared for the 21st century. They will be taught all phases of drainage, waste, venting, water distribution, repair and maintenance work through our outside work program.
