Welcome to Youth for Honduras!
We are very proud and honored to be able to introduce you to our program, staff, collaborators, and last but not least our amazing and hardworking youth!
Youth for Honduras is a Christian transition house program for youth who have been living in Honduran orphanages but now seek to establish an independent adult life. This transition from protected orphanage to society is extremely difficult for most youth. Not only are they challenged when it comes to self-esteem, social networks, and knowledge about society; they also face a reality of high unemployment and high crime rates in Honduras. Sadly, many of them are easy targets for gangs, violence, and prostitution.
Youth for Honduras is focused on meeting the needs of these young men and women! We offer scholarship, housing, counselling, and workshops. We also educate youth and staff at children’s homes in our transition material.
Here you can watch a short video presentation of who we are and what we do:
Youth for Honduras is based in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, and is quickly developing in all areas: resources, collaborators, program content, number of youth in our program, and much more!
We want to train and accompany young men and women graduated from Honduran children’s homes so that they, with the appropriate help and guidance, will be prepared to make their own decisions as responsible young adults and contribute to their country.
We wish to be recognized as a safe and competent transition program that works for and watches over youth graduated from Honduran children’s homes, preparing and guiding them towards a successful reintegration into society.
