¡Supérate! began as a visionary dream of a Salvadoran businessman which came to life in 2004 with one center and 40 young students from the San Andrés Valley in El Salvador. Three years later, the program evolved into a social franchise that to this day has benefited a total of 3,810 young men and women throughout 10 centers in El Salvador, and Panama.
