This project, developed and managed by the Zaña Valley team, involves 25 teenagers from the three 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.
Last year, participants carried out studies to identify the major challenges teens face in each community, the findings of which pointed to alcohol and drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, pollution and boredom due to a lack of activities as priority concerns. The youth then made presentations on these issues in the Zaña high school.
