2018 officially started with a new group of girls that happily signed up for our field hockey programs. Girls aged from 12 to 18 years old began with trainings last week, after a signing in process that inlcudes their commitment (and their families) to the programs.
As usual, all the participants are provided with all the equipment needed to do proper trainings: field hockey sticks, balls, shin guard protection, etc.
Girls are making sure that their new team mates feel comfortable and motivated, explanining hockey techniques, being proactive in initiating conversations and smiling a lot.
Coming month, competitions are starting, with weekly games on weekends.
Thanks to your support we can keep on providing high level sports program!
It is a fresh year and a one full of surprises and excitement- we have planned many tech adventures for the year. Thanks to your generous donation we have bought new equipment that transforms any object into a key- putting creativity first as any object can become something completely new.
This year the group has some familiar faces that are participating in the activities for a second year and many new and curious members, who are math and quiz lovers. As well as developing creativity, and of course learning how to code, kids will learn how to collaborate and develop frustration management skills.

New Year, New Challenges
By Luz Amuchastegui - Youth Development Director
Another year came to an end and as usual we needed to celebrate all the acomplishments. We had a big party involving all of our programs participants, their families and our staff.
During the celebration, every program had their moment where they received a diploma and showed off what they had been doing during the year. When it came to our coders, they showed a brillant app they been working on, and made a display to play with the youngest members of our community.
The rest of our programs also had their moment during the day to show the results of the year and to have fun playing outside, feeling safe and owning their future!
The next couple of months will mean planing time for our staff as we prepare for an exiciting new year, full of new challenges and with many surprises to come. Stay tunned!
