Here's just a small sampling of the initiatives that are ongoing with your support.
CHarlas con el grupo, Chats with the group
An important part of the Youth Across Borders mission is to establish deep meaningful connections between the Youth Ambassadors and Youth they have traveled to see. During our trips, the team splits up in to smaller "grupos" or groups for a "charla" or chat. It is during this time that the youth can get to know one another on a person to person level and share their personal experiences of living with HIV as well as share questions, answers, and laughter.
We utilize our volunteers unique talents to create activities throughout the trip that convey messages of diversity, hope, healing, bravery, openness, strength, learning, and community.
During the week we will work on projects with the children we traveled to see to enhance the environment where they live and play.
