This steering committee will recruit and train approximately 20 local youth interested in creating news, cultural, music and other types of radio programs. The goal is to promote the concept of community radio, to engage youth in local public discourse, and to develop greater capacity for managing and sustaining an internet-based radio station.
Monteverde en Movimiento equips leaders of exercise activities with community organizing and resource management skills, to help them sustain their group organization and to help the local population to modify their lifestyles to include more physical activity. The project will also help establish a permanent multi-institutional commission dedicated to public health and physical activities in the Monteverde zone.
Youth Action Monteverde works to support actions and projects that benefit local young people, while strengthening their leadership and organizational capacities. Focal groups meet to define needs and interests, then plan and organize social, educational and recreational activities. Youth Action fund-raises to maintain an ongoing Youth Fund to enable groups of young people to develop proposals and carry out projects of their own initiative.
