Youth and Community Development Program: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras

A regional alliance to support youth and community development in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Youth and Community Development Program: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Glasswing International, together with private-sector partners, including Chevron and HanesBrands, partnered to form a regional alliance to support youth and community development in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. The partnership focuses on establishing support networks among youth, creating safe and stimulating learning environments, and providing access to extra-curricular educational and recreational activities to provide youth with tools to make better choices in their lives, and discover their full potential, promoting positive alternatives to crime and violence.

Glasswing International leverages private sector financial, in-kind, and human resources to support the programs, promote leadership, self-esteem building and life skills development while also encouraging community and corporate participation through volunteering. The partnership is leveraging $5 million through this strategic alliance, with participation from multinational corporations including Chevron and Starbucks, as well as Ministries of Education.

This is the first time USAID has partnered with a local Central American organization for the implementation of a program on a regional scale. With the support of thousands of community volunteers, this partnership aims to physically transform more than 150 schools in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala into safer community spaces while mobilizing positive role models and community participation to ensure sustainability.
