Opportunity to Host Latin American Youth
By Robin Loving
Each January, outstanding youth from all over Latin America come to San Miguel for a youth empowerment program called Empoderando a Latinoamerica. The course inspires and empowers Latin American youth by imparting knowledge and tools to enable them to run social projects, engage in public issues, and contribute in an effective manner to the well-being of their communities.
Young people ages 18 to 24 from various socioeconomic origins, cultures, and countries participate in activities designed to make them agents of positive social change with a profound sense of environmental responsibility and commitment to peace and social justice. The course will hold a forum Saturday, January 14, and Sunday, January 15, with former participants. Successful projects will be featured and analyzed to increase their social impact.
Organizers are seeking host families for these outstanding leaders of the future. If you are interested, please contact Santiago Méndez at email@example.com and see empoderandoalatinoamerica.org.
