Working Together for Youth Prevention in Caguas!

By Yolanda Gonzalez Malave, Program Assistant and HR Coordinator, Caribbean and Latin American Region

In August, staff from our Guara Bi Guaitiao youth prevention program recently partnered with fellow service providers, Corporacion SANOS, A Pearl of Great Price, and the Caguas City Police Department to organize a community outreach event in celebration of International Youth Day.

Our main goal was to reach young people between the ages of 15 and 24 from the town of Caguas, offering them information and preventive supplies such as prophylactics.

This event allowed us to speak with youth who visited our booth, let them know about the resources that they have for prevention, and discuss the challenges that they might often face.
