Creating a Youth Center or Space is a particularly important action of the project. As the capital of the department, The Youth Center or Space will develop secondary and tertiary prevention programs in the municipality of Chimaltenango, open to teenagers and youth from the municipality and from the department. Named ‘Casa Juventud 180: Gira tus ideas y gira tu mundo’ by youngsters, it is a meeting place where children and youth will be able to do activities promoting personal development and professional training through socio-community participation and through the investment of leisure time in cultural, artistic, recreational and sport activities.
The mayor of Chimaltenango lead a tour of the facilities of ‘Casa Juventud 180: Gira tus ideas y gira tu mundo’ and he expressed his commitment to supporting actions to improve the living standards of the youth in the municipality. The space will be coordinated by the Municipal Office for the Protection of Children, Teenagers and Youth.
