My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Friends of Cantera Inc, Baton Rouge, LA, USA
I have served as a full-time volunteer with Cantera's youth program for the last year. During the year, I have witnessed time and time again the difference that Cantera's support makes in the life of young people. The youth and young adults who get involved in Cantera become markedly different people through the formation, empowerment, and opportunities they receive from Cantera. Just to give a few examples, there are workshops and programs on personal development, violence prevention, gender equality, and the environment. The participants then use what they have learned to benefit their whole community, for example, forming an Ecological Brigade in a primary school and giving violence prevention workshops in secondary schools. Cantera's work, both with youth and with other sectors, is indispensable to individuals, families, communities, and Nicaragua.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand the youth program so that more people could be involved!
