    Upon entering the gym it was wonderful to see so many young people and children of different ages sharing and waiting their turn to try their hand at the various  challenges such as the longest jump, who can do the most pull ups and burpees in a minute.

    To delve a little deeper into the activity, the young people were very happy and they identified with each of the challenges presented to them that had already started 15 hours the day before; it was a vigilance of friendship, discipline, and rescuing the integral values ​​of society.

    But is that all they do in this temple of sports and brotherhood? Andre Valenciano of Youth Action said to THE COSTA RICA NEWS that they are an NGO that prevents exclusion through student workshops, cultural projects, sports projects, academic performance and group cohesion with kids from age seven to their final year in school, since a major cause of student dropout is attributed to this very reason.

    The planning and execution of the projects are supported by TCU university students doing their university community work with Youth Action and by volunteers and officials of public and private entities through their Corporate Social Responsibility.

    At this time the Youth Action Foundation remains employed directly with 398 students, over 500 teachers in the

    country and has involved the participation of over 500 students from TCU.

    This foundation is achieving where many have failed; entering difficult schools located in rural areas where many do not want to carrying the banner of love and commitment to humanity brought by Youth Action. The nonprofit has received over 12 awards, such as the CITI Founding Organization, who works with over 1,000 communities worldwide, focusing on strategic donations to priority areas such as micro business, education, financial education and asset building.

    THE COSTA RICA NEWS is active in the cause and invites you to become infected with emotion, love, and solidarity to save hundreds of youth at risk, get them off the streets and salvage an uncertain future in their communities by giving them the opportunity to develop sports, art, education and above all, believing in themselves as examples to future of humanity.
