Reviewers: LATAM Push Protocol Ambassadors


Enhance learning in the development of potential safe, innovative, and efficient decentralized communication solutions for students of the Web3 and Blockchain Diploma using Push Protocol.


This proposal seeks to teach and implement technical training in Push Protocol within the first cohort of the Web3 and Blockchain diploma at Universidad Católica Andrés Bello (UCAB). We will train students in developing safe and efficient decentralized communication solutions, fostering innovation through the tools that Push Protocol offers. Through specialized modules, practical exercises, and real projects, participants will be able to apply what they have learned, strengthen their technical skills, and contribute to the growth of the Push ecosystem in LATAM through Push DAO and Push Builders.


Currently, there is no specific training on Push Protocol in the LATAM region that addresses the needs and solutions for decentralized communication in the Web3 and blockchain industry. This gap limits the opportunities for students to effectively contribute to this rapidly growing ecosystem.

Therefore, this diploma is proposed as a solution to educate future builders who can lead and innovate using and implementing Push services, offering several benefits:

  • Teaching students to implement Push Protocol communication tools: In the diploma, Push Protocol will be a subject, teaching students to implement Push communication tools, fostering specific skills and preparing participants to effectively apply and implement these skills.
  • Generating new use cases and applications: Students will demonstrate the skills learned through a final project that implements Push Protocol tools, showcasing practical cases and real applications.
  • Significant brand recognition for Push Protocol: Participation at UCAB, a well-recognized educational institution in Venezuela, will strengthen Push Protocol’s image and credibility within the Web3 ecosystem in LATAM. By supporting the training of Web3 professionals, Push will contribute to the overall growth and development of the community.
  • Enhancing the impact that LATAM Push ambassadors can generate for Push Protocol: The LATAM ambassadors’ team, made up of developers and professionals from various disciplines, will lead and represent Push Protocol in the diploma. They will be responsible for preparing classes, providing mentorships, and developing educational material, ensuring a comprehensive learning experience for the students.
  • Training a new generation of future Push Builders: This program will facilitate the creation of a network of potential collaborators interested in creating and implementing Push services. It will also encourage them to become active members in Push DAO.
  • Amplifying Push Protocol’s social media presence: Generating interactive and educational content during the diploma to increase interest and engagement on social media platforms, extending Push Protocol’s reach and visibility. Additionally, it will provide an opportunity to present the protocol to a broad audience in the Latam region, increasing the understanding and knowledge of Push technology.

This proposal not only addresses a crucial educational need but also establishes a pathway for professional development and technological innovation in LATAM.



The comprehensive educational program will focus on imparting knowledge and skills about Push Protocol. This program’s implementation will include theoretical-practical classes, practical examples, and real projects, allowing students to directly apply what they’ve learned in real scenarios, thereby fostering a deep understanding and effective application of Push services.

The curriculum includes: Intro to Push Protocol, Push Notifications, Push Chat, Push Grant Program.

LFG & Keep Pushing :bell: :purple_heart:


Like I was saying on the ambassador call today, wonderful. What are the dates for this? Are dates set if this works/if we do the program?



The educational model they propose is very interesting. Hopefully, it can be replicated in various universities across LATAM to continue promoting the growth and learning of blockchain among future developers.


This proposal is fantastic, offering numerous benefits for Push Protocol and the Push DAO.

The Latam ambassador team has achieved excellent results in previous events and programs, and I know they will do a great job in this diploma program.


Hi @EC3

Thanks for your support. I tell you about the dates, the start of the diploma course is at the end of July - beginning of August.

First, the introduction to web3 and blockchain, bitcoin and Ethereum will be given.
When we confirm our participation, they will give us a fixed date to teach the Push Protocol subject.
This would be in August approximately.

Thanks for commenting @Jose

Hopefully this is just the beginning of forming more Push Builders in the LATAM region, the ambassadors are doing great teamwork and building very good Builders.

Keep Pushing :bell: :purple_heart:


As member of Latam ambassadors, I would like to request the DAO Council to open the temperature check for this proposal. Understanding that if the community is in favor, the team that will lead this proposal can proceed to request a Grant for sponsoring the event and another one for executing the proposal.

Open to any feedback or recommendations.


Thank you for the excellent proposal @soymaferlopezp, I have added the temp check for this proposal below. However, it has been decided that the funding for this proposal be sourced from the Push Grant Program, the temperature check will be used to ensure the DAO is aligned with this proposal before officially applying.

Hello. I really like this proposal, I think it is very important to approach and include young people in this ecosystem, they will bring and develop fresh ideas with a different perspective and this will be useful for many.


¡This is a great proposal!

It is a unique opportunity that will allow more people in LATAM to learn about the development opportunities that exist in Push Protocol, a well as bring knowledge in a practical way and with the help of a Universsity of great status at the level of education and with the best -trained people, as are Push Protocol Ambasadors.


During the grants review process, it will have to be further stipulated how this initiative relates to ROI for the Push Ecosystem. More specifically, what do we expect to gain from this involvement in terms of, for example: further developers, startup teams/grantees, contributors, or similar?

This means while the grant is submitted, this will have to be clearer. Thanks!


Hi Zula
Welcome to the Push forum and comment on the proposal.
Indeed, being able to have the opportunity to teach young people and more people who do not know the ecosystem is a great contribution; that they can learn these tools and benefits of web3 is as you say, very useful.

Hey Say, good to see you back here in the Push forum.

Thanks for commenting and adding to the proposal. Indeed, we want more people to know and implement the tools that Push offers. Also, being part of a University where this kind of technology is constantly promoted is a great pro.

Hi @EC3
Thanks for pointing out to give more details of the ROI, I will keep that in mind to be more specific.
