The improvement of the educational experience of minors and the development of personal skills reduce the risk of child labor. In this study we assess the impact of a psychoeducational intervention for the prevention of child labor in two neighborhoods in the periphery of Lima. With a pretest-posttest design, we evaluate the changes in self-esteem, self-efficacy, social skills, school attendance and academic performance of 48 students between 8 and 13 years old (M=10.38, SD=1.22). The results showed an improvement in perceived self-esteem and a decrease in social self-efficacy and social skills self-report. The qualitative evaluation of the perception of changes by students, parents and teachers demonstrated improvements in the socio-affective development of the participants. The evaluation of the program implies the existence of a process of awareness of the personal abilities of the participants, together with small improvements in the academic field that can have an indirect impact on the risk of child labor.
