Now nearly 9 months into their 2011 scholarship, OYE youth scholars are having a larger impact on their community than ever. In the past three months alone, OYE’s scholars have carried out a massive, citywide sports tournament that impacted over 1,500 youth, local fundraising initiatives, writing and designing the forthcoming edition of Revista Jóvenes youth magazine, and mural paintings.
The work of OYE youth does not stop there. Over the past three month, OYE scholars have worked closely with several international volunteers, who have offered a series of interesting and useful capacity building classes that have provided OYE scholars with new tools such as survival skills, yoga, English, and creative writing that they can utilize in and outside of the academic setting.
OYE youth are more committed than ever to taking control of their lives, becoming leaders, and being change-makers in their communities. We invite you to take a look at what the young leaders behind this inspiring youth organization have been up to recently.
