Life Training Program — We have visited the participating organizations

By Kar­la Aguilar, staff at Youth for Hon­duras

In April we got the op­por­tu­ni­ty to vis­it all or­ga­ni­za­tions who have joined our Life Train­ing Pro­gram. We vis­it­ed them all over the coun­try and first and fore­most we no­ticed their great re­spon­si­bil­i­ty and com­mit­ment to de­vel­op­ing the pro­gram. This ben­e­fits their youth to a large ex­tend when prepar­ing their tran­si­tions and be­com­ing young adults.

This year, as men­tioned in a pre­vi­ous newslet­ter, we have planned four meet­ings with the par­tic­i­pants of our Life Train­ing Pro­gram. We want to vis­it them to be able to sup­port them bet­ter and help them in their process. The con­cept is that they are be­ing trained to be able to train their youth.

Our first meet­ing took place at our of­fice in Tegu­ci­gal­pa where the par­tic­i­pants re­ceived a two-day-train­ing. Then, in April, we vis­it­ed them. The two last steps will be fol­low-ups and shar­ing of ex­pe­ri­ences. On these oc­ca­sions we will guide each one of the or­ga­ni­za­tions through work­shops and feed­back so they will feel ac­com­pa­nied in the process.

Dur­ing the vis­its we car­ried out in April, we ob­served that the dif­fer­ent or­ga­ni­za­tions have adopt­ed much knowl­edge from our first meet­ing. They have ad­just­ed that knowl­edge to their own re­al­i­ties and made a plan for this year.

So now their youth will be taught in the themes of our man­u­als through work­shops giv­en by the or­ga­ni­za­tion staff.

Many of the par­tic­i­pat­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions have not only been em­pow­ered by re­ceiv­ing work­shops di­rect­ly with us. The staff that we trained have trained their col­leagues, too, along with their youth. Now, more staff are in­volved in sup­port­ing the youth’s tran­si­tion process. And this makes it pos­si­ble to car­ry out the tran­si­tion prepa­ra­tion on a day to day ba­sis.

One of the pur­pos­es with the Life Train­ing Pro­gram is that the staff get the most pos­si­ble out of our man­u­als. They reg­is­ter their process so they will iden­ti­fy in which as­pects they are pro­gress­ing and where to set in to per­form bet­ter.


Youth for Hon­duras wants to thank each one of the or­ga­ni­za­tions for their par­tic­i­pa­tion and in­ter­est in the Life Train­ing Pro­gram.

Also, we want to ac­knowl­edge the ef­forts that they put into the pro­gram to de­vel­op the tran­si­tion work­shops. This reaf­firms Youth for Hon­duras’ oblig­a­tion to fa­cil­i­tate the nec­es­sary help to each one of the or­ga­ni­za­tions so they can car­ry out their work­shops and the train­ing of their youth on a day to day ba­sis.

Fur­ther­more, we hope to main­tain close re­la­tions be­tween Youth for Hon­duras and each of the par­tic­i­pat­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions to be able to keep work­ing with the youth mak­ing their tran­si­tion a suc­cess.
