Cosigüina Youth Center

Coordinator of the Cosigüina Youth Centre, 2008

Friday, 24 April, 2009

The work of the coordinator of the Cosigüina Youth Centre has been maintained thanks to the support of the Santa Rosa Fund. From January to May Carla Betanco held this post, but due to her pregnancy she had to leave the responsibility of this post. After discussions amongst the group of youths, Diana Sánchez assumed responsibility as coordinator from the beginning of June. Since she began work as the Youth Centre coordinator, things have been very active and Diana has organised several activities with the youths. Thus far she is managing the centre well, looking to hire it out to other institutions for workshops, offering a photocopying service, and hiring out rooms to tourists who visit the volcano.

Tuesday, 1 May, 2007

This year [2007] the Centre will continue to give training in life skills for young people with the aim of helping them to be authors of their own process of education, formation, growth, self-esteem, personal and social values and commitment to their integration into society.

Coordination meetings with various institutions will be held with the aim of gaining support in the themes of first aid, the environment, drug use, alcoholism, juvenile delinquency and loss of purpose.

Personal mentoring will be arranged through personal interviews.

Every fortnight (the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 6pm to 7:30pm) the forward planning group of the youth club will meet to plan activities.
