Enlaces works for a generation of children and teenagers committed to changing their world. Our mission is to transform the lives of children and adolescents in vulnerable situations through the practice of contemporary dance, strengthening their academic development and psychosocial and family support, developing skills that allow them to improve their quality of life and grow as agents of change and responsible citizens.
Most of the residents of the communities that surround the Historic Center of Panama City, especially children and adolescents, live in multidimensional poverty, and are excluded from the processes of economic and social development that transcend beyond the borders of their neighborhoods.
Enlaces uses a methodology that combines dance, education and emotional development as preventive tools that impacts the lives of more than 400 boys, girls and adolescents annually, opening opportunities for their integral development, for the development of life skills, for access to higher education and insertion in the productive system.
In the last 10 years, the program has grown and evolved together with the children and adolescents. We currently accompany 400 children and adolescents between the ages of 4 and 17 in a sustained manner to discover tools for personal care, emotional development and social skills while being strengthened artistically and academically.
