Transforming lives

With great joy we let you know about the latest activities and achievements of our youths.

 

Youth Day Celebration

Some days ago, the annual Youth Day celebration took place, where JUCONI’s youth population, meets to enjoy a day full of fun, conviviality, learning and good times. Through sport sessions, educational workshops and recreational activities, youths reaffirm the importance of working on their own strengths to build a violence free life.

On this occasion, the JUCONI team organized soccer, volleyball, and artistic expression workshops, among many other activities. More than 50 young people from JUCONI’s three subprograms, enjoyed together, delicious food and snacks, where of course, the beneficiaries of the Youth House were present.

 

A day inside the Youth House

We would like to let you know, how an everyday day develops for our youths.They maintain a very active rhythm within the Youth House. Every day, early at 6:00 a.m., starts a new day when everybody makes their respective bed and become part of one of the commissions in which the cleanliness of the different areas of the House is divided. Later, they take a breakfast and go to their different activities: some to JUCONI’s Labor Culture Workshop, others to school and some to their jobs. In the afternoon, at 2:00 p.m. they return to the House to eat and then some of them return to the Labor Culture Workshop or to other workshops and sports activities. Around 7:00 p.m. youths return to the House, they rest for a while in the recreational area, to dine together and then take a bath. At 22:00 hrs. everybody is prepared to rest.

Wednesdays are an exception when it comes to dinner, since the youths themselves, together with an educator, make dinner for everyone and sometimes go to the cinema to watch a movie. Besides weekends, Wednesday is the day they cook their own food. Routine is a very useful tool that engages into discipline and order, both important elements to heal the wounds left by violence; while promoting time and space organization to ensure a healthy coexistence.

 

How do we work with people affected by violence?

The JUCONI Program offers individual, family and community educational-therapeutic services, which includes home-based family therapy for all cases. Personalized processes are carried out for the recovery of the harmful effects of violence and the construction of safe environments, for the better development and exercise of the rights of children, adolescents, and young people, including early childhood. We work in a continuum that goes from the prevention of violence and the consequent loss of parental care, to the family reintegration of children and adolescents or the transition of young people to independent life. 

The therapeutic response developed by JUCONI México A.C. is based on a psychodynamic understanding of behavior (supported by Theories of Trauma and Attachment), focusing on strengths, the modeling of roles and behaviors, and creating a safe environment free of any type of violence (physical, psychological, moral and social). This environment provides emotional restraint in which, individual and group therapeutic actions, are carried out aimed at promoting a healthy management of emotions, a grieving process and violent experiences, and orientation towards a hopeful future.  

 

You are part of our achievements!

Undoubtedly, our work is possible thanks to the great commitment of our collaborators, as well as the trust and generosity of donors and allies, who, like you, allow us to keep working with young people (in addition to children, adolescents, and their families), seeking to heal the wounds of the past and building a dignified violence free life.

For the above, we want to share with you our 2017 annual report, so you can learn in detail the achievements and challenges faced by JUCONI, as well as the results we obtained during the past year. We will love that you can have a space to consult it and let us know your doubts and / or comments. We are happy to hear from you at: asistenteproyectos@juconi.org.mx

Our joint efforts to build a world free of violence

Outdoors activities

On this opportunity we want to let you know about some of the activities that our youngsters develop outside the Youth House to strength their social skills, coexistence, and the way in which rules should be respected.

On weekends, our youths use to perform various sports activities in open spaces, such as parks and gardens throughout the city. These occasions are ideal for spending a pleasant time, exercising, and developing skills, attitudes, and values.

Another kind of the recreational activities that take place outdoors are visits to coffee shops, the cinema, conferences, and museums. During the holiday recess of Easter, our young people went to a “balneario” to enjoy the sunny days. It should be noted that in this opportunity those young people who already have a paid job, financially supported the rest of their colleagues, who still do not have it, with the expense derived from admission to the “balneario” facilities. In this way they can strengthen ties of solidarity, collaboration, and support.

 

Workshops

While we emphasize the need to live together and socialize outdoors, our young people constantly assist to workshops that deal with important topics for their development, such as: values, communication, decision making, sexuality and gender equality. The workshops are held at the Youth House and at the JUCONI Center where they can get along with other youth and adolescents who are part of the JUCONI Program, to continue strengthening socialization skills and sensitivity to different realities.

 

News inside the House

JUCONI’s work is possible due to the great effort made by our beneficiaries, our staff, and our generous donors. Throughout our 29 years fighting violence, several people and organizations have trusted on our methodology and our impacts to combat the intergenerational cycles of violence.

Recently, the trust that a Mexican organization placed in us, made possible the improvement of two facilities of the Youth House: the recreational area and the bathroom. Today our youths enjoy safer, more dignified, and renewed spaces. Every single donation allows us to keep working on the skill development, living conditions, trauma relief and coexistence of the young people who live and attend the House.

We are very happy to share with you the improvements in the Youth House and to let you know that, through your generous donations the project that supports and empowers 19 young people in their process of building a harmonious, independent life, far from the street and violence is kept alive and generating positive and transcendent impacts. Not only the lives of our young people are favored, in the process, society meets better citizens committed with healing, well-being and peace.

Thanks to your confidence and your generous donations, today we have been able to raise a total of $36,813.14 dollars; this amount, means the possibility of transforming lives and fighting the consequences of violence, while breaking its reproduction through intergenerational cycles. Without a doubt, your participation constitutes a fundamental piece in the construction of a world without violence.

Receive our sincere gratitude.

Please feel free to contact us: www.juconi.org.mx. We’ll be happy to let you know more about our activities, goals, and impacts.        

Sincerely,

The JUCONI Team

Building an independent live through the strengthening of skills

A House full of movement

The Youth House of JUCONI is a very active place, full of movement and life. In each one of the activities within the House, our young people strengthen their skills and contribute to build their respective independent life plans, in order to have a life totally integrated to society.

Throughout the last trimester, the Youth House has worked in a community-based manner in the establishment of emergency prevention measures, such as: evacuation drills, obtaining contact data and managing risks. Young people have also worked on agreements on the use of video games, cell phones and tablets under the consideration that they are recreational activities that should not affect their routines, commissions, personal activities, or coexistence among the community.

Sports and leisure activities that promote coexistence and environments of respect and peace, such as: visits to parks, cinemas and museums are continuous. It highlights the participation of our young people in Carrera Chévez where they spent a very pleasant time among other youths and participants. At the same time, workshops on labor culture are developed, where topics on quality in work, productivity, costs, work stress and legal framework are addressed.

During December, a series of festivities were held to celebrate Christmas and the end year 2017.  Our youths and educators participated with gift exchanges and enjoyed delicious traditional dishes.

We are pleased to realize the positive results in our youth; they are satisfied with their own advances and increasingly ready for independent living.

 

JUCONI International Conference: a space to strengthen knowledge and alliances

We are pleased to inform you that the 4th JUCONI International Conference was a success. In the Convention Center of Puebla city for three days, 25, 26 and 27 October, 54 speakers, 260 participants and 180 organizations met. Through 11 lectures and 34 workshops topics such as violence, trauma, peace culture, therapies, families, child development, among others, were analyzed and discussed.

The JUCONI Conference has turned into an important space to share knowledge, gather specialists, and professionalize the attention to vulnerable children, adolescents, and families to transform lives and strengthen our society.

We will meet again on October 29, 30 and 31, 2018 in the fifth edition of our great event.

 

A new year, a new goal

Thanks to your generous donations and the trust you have placed in our project, during the last trimester we were able to reach 90% of our goal in GlobalGiving. Due to the above and to the fact that our youth benefit every day with our shared efforts, we decided to increase the amount to be raised to $ 50,000 USD. We are confident that we will continue to be participants in the empowerment of our young people and that teamwork achieves great results that comes with great satisfaction.Thank you very much on behalf of our young beneficiaries and the entire JUCONI team! We wish you a happy and successful year 2018.
