There are marginalized areas and communities in which various social problems are experienced, such as: high rates of drug and alcohol consumption, family violence and delinquency, to name a few. And it is in these contexts that girls, boys, adolescents and young people are formed without many possibilities to break the cycle of poverty in which they live by themselves.
WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT THE PROBLEM?
In Jóvenes Constructores de la Comunidad A.C. We believe in the potential of young people to become agents of change in their communities. Therefore, through our JCC model we provide technical training, training in human development and psychosocial accompaniment for the development of life skills, at the same time that, with the participation of themselves, we carry out construction works of community value ( parks, soccer fields, outdoor gyms, among others).
In order to benefit more young people living in marginalized communities, we want to take a big step: create the Construction Professions Training Center, a space that will have classrooms, workshops, material equipment and tools necessary for young people to acquire theoretical knowledge and Practices to be certified and access to better job opportunities.
We know that our goal is ambitious, and to achieve this we have established various strategies: fundraising events with potential donors, donation in kind from our donor companies and this crowfunding campaign in which your contribution is vital.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO USE YOUR DONATION?
Your donation and all the money we raise with these strategies will serve not only to complete for the purchase and rehabilitation of the property that is providing us with an accessible price, but also to train at least 60 young people from Colonia Lomas de Santo Domingo and the zone adjoining the Observatory terminals through the JCC model applied in the rehabilitation of the space only in 2019.
MORE ABOUT US
We are an organization that has more than 10 years of experience training young people, rehabilitating public spaces and transforming community life, recently we were participating in the reconstruction of houses affected by the earthquakes of 2017.
THE BIG CHALLENGE AND HOW YOU CAN HELP US
Our main challenge is to reach the goal for the purchase of the property for December 2018, since it is the deadline that has been established by the owners of the property, so we are putting all our efforts and we invite you to join the cause, not only making a donation, but spreading our campaign to reach more people interested in our project, or if you are interested you can also buy items for your home in our bazaar where the 100% of your purchase will be donated to the purchase of the property.

From the bottom of our hearts and on behalf of all the members of the team and the young people who have participated in our processes. THANK YOU!
