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!

 

Our Mission

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.

 

Our Vision

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.
