Our Team

IT TAKES AN ALLIANCE OF BELIEVERS…

Our staff team consists of experienced, energetic professionals who live in Central America and are part of the communities they serve. Several staff members started as volunteers or even used the JovenSalud platform themselves as a teen. We are passionate about working with youth and united by our core belief in the potential of every teen to live a meaningful life.
