Changing communities

Some young people might be interested in being community leaders, or positive role models in their community.

This film features young people from our partner Tiempo de Juego. They explain how, by building their self-esteem and developing an understanding of their rights, Tiempo de Juego has helped them to transform their way of thinking about themselves and has inspired them to start spreading change throughout their neighbourhood. One of the young people, Bocanegra, talks about wanting to lead by example to show other young people in his community that joining a gang or getting involved with drugs is not the only option - that there are positive opportunities for them and that they can have a future.
