YMCA Risaralda Columbia

In Risaralda, Colombia, the partnership focuses on the recruitment and training of volunteers, who are the life force of their YMCA.  Volunteers of Risaralda’s Y offer all sorts of opportunities to their community, like the National Program for Conciliation of Cultural Development that provides neighborhood kids with lessons in theatre, dance and music, or the YMCA Recreate program, where volunteers use fun activities like Clown Theatre to educate youth on serious topics, like their rights as citizens or sexual health.  Through help from the YMCA of Greater Moncton, the Risaralda Y is able to coordinate all of these amazing volunteer efforts that work to create better conditions for children and young people in the region.
