 "GETTING TO KNOW MY FAMILY"  ARRIVED TO CARTAGENA WITH JUVENTUD LÍDER.

"GETTING TO KNOW MY FAMILY" ARRIVED TO CARTAGENA WITH JUVENTUD LÍDER.

Aware of the importance of values and family unity, the youth leader foundation, with the support of the bolivar Davienda foundation and the support of the jackys sports club, carried out the strategy "getting to know my family", a space dedicated to the principles that should be instilled in children and adolescents.

Around 120 children of this sports school, together with their parents, enjoyed activities and participated in discussions that implemented the importance of communication channels between the parent and the child so that the child grows up in a healthy environment, with self-esteem and above all love.

These young youth leaders use baseball as a non-conventional method of education, which is why different activities were implemented in addition to the techniques, to encourage unity and teamwork
