Technical Skills Development
As the only technical institute of its kind in Central America, the IPC offers training programs in areas including industrial refrigeration, air conditioning, mechatronics, and textile and apparel technology.
Since its inception, over 6,500 students have graduated from the various IPC programs, including over 1,000 students who graduated from the IPC one-year program, with a 90% job placement record in a wide range of companies in Honduras, including at Gildan. 
Part of Your Life
Gildan’s "Part of Your Life" program is yet another way that Gildan addresses local community needs. This program was launched in 2011 in Nicaragua, expanded to Honduras in 2012 and the Dominican Republic in 2013. 
Gildan’s "Part of Your Life" program invites our employees, in these three countries, to provide ideas of community projects where they would like Gildan to be involved in. The current focus of this program is on supporting education projects in the communities where our employees live.
