This project, developed and managed by the newly formed Madre Oliva Association, involves 25 teenagers from the communities of Aviación, Mocupe and Zaña, who meet on a weekly basis throughout the year.
A wide range of workshops are provided on topics such as management of feelings and conflicts, self-esteem, healthy sexuality, appropriate use of social media, cultural identity and violence against women. Participants visit other adolescent groups in the neighbouring cities of Chiclayo and Cayaltí and tour historic sites and museums in the Zaña Valley.
In the second half of the year, participants will carry out studies in their communities to determine needs and will then develop and carry out initiatives that respond to the needs identified. As emerging leaders they will endeavour to involve other youth from the area in their chosen projects.
