The Youth Development Coordinator will be responsible for supporting our existing programs that involve youth while also having the opportunity to help us identify, plan and develop new projects and activities.

Currently, we are offering weekly English classes and environmental education and trainings to children and youth, as well as several Literacy Clubs (LitClubs and empowerment) for girls. We also offer music lessons and we teach seasonal swimming lessons that normally occur during the months of April and May.

In the past we have offered soccer lessons to girls and dance classes to adolescents. All of our kids love arts and crafts. Throughout all of our youth programming, however, it is essential to see them as active participants in an inclusive learning process aimed at forming global, conscious and active citizens who are guided by values such as empathy; compassion; generosity; mutual respect; acceptance; cultural appreciation; caring for each other; speaking the truth; acting honestly and transparently; and actively caring and protecting the environment, animals and all sentient beings.

The YDC entails a high level of leadership and responsibility as he/she will be the person actually in charge of managing and leading most of our work with youth, while also leading efforts to solidify local partnerships that can allow us to expand our programs and increase even more our impact.
