VISION

The SERES experience has inspired millions to contribute in personal and meaningful ways towards transforming our systems, societies and cultures to create a world brimming with well-being.

MISSION

The SERES mission is to cultivate and catalyze youth leaders to create more just and sustainable communities in Central America.

We work with youth from low-income peripheral or rural communities in Guatemala and El Salvador, focusing on areas where increasing violence, income disparities and limited economic opportunities are placing increasing numbers of youth at-risk to the influence of gangs, crime and other impacts of social disintegration. Using our Framework for Change, we work with these “unlikely” leaders to unleash a generation of youth who have the skills, sense of self and spark to address tough challenges and initiate innovative and creative solutions that can reshape our society.

“No other institution or organization is offering such holistic and safe learning spaces as SERES does. Thanks for everything.”

Marta Vargas, SERES Ambassador

“SERES means a lot in my life. It’s a circle of friendship for learning, transformation and personal growth. It’s a place of trust and confidence. As a SERES facilitator, I get to transmit all of this to other people”

Wilson Sánchez, SERES Facilitator

“The tools that SERES teaches us help us to replicate the work in our communities…we can reach more people, empower more youth, and make our action plans at the local level known at the regional level.”

Julio Tojín, SERES Ambassador

“The spaces that SERES provides are places where we can be our full selves – the good and the bad – and that’s always something to appreciate. I feel valued because here it’s not your academic achievements that make a person, it’s the way you think and your ability to keep going…”

Gaspar Laines Juil

“I have felt included and connected from the minute that I became involved (in SERES). It has helped me grow in my own personal leadership. SERES never tells me what to do, but they support me to make the decisions that are right for me.”

Axel Salanic

“To feel that I’m a part of a movement at the level of UNESCO has confirmed for me that I am doing valuable things. I’m fortunate to belong to this global movement for action”

Antonio Cruz Sanchez, SERES co-founder
