In September 2018, the first pilot Resilience Hubs was established in Tecpán, Chimaltenango and in 2019 we are launching a Hub in Uspantán, Quiché. These Hubs will be a safe, youth-focused space within the community and provide support and encouragement for young people to contribute to the enrichment of their communities, and fulfill their potential through leadership, engaged citizenship and the creation of positive relationships.
The Hubs will also be a focal point for fostering a cross-sectoral, collaborative approach across multiple NGOs, CBOs and private sector organizations, developing an ecosystem of support and services in service of youth-led community development.
The following organizations and institutions are active collaborating Hub partners: ProMujer, SERniña, and Enactus.
We have plans to open future Youth Hubs in Guatemala and El Salvador. Contact us to see how you can become involved.
