THE STORY:

Champions in Action connects the disadvantaged youth of Guatemala to mentors through premier sports camps.

Since 2010, Champions in Action has held five camps with 500 youth from the most dangerous zones of Guatemala City being connected to mentors.

This December, we are hoping to raise enough money to send 10 youth to one of our 2013 camps: $2,000. This amount will allow us to connect 10 at-risk from dangerous neighborhoods to lifelong members, helping them to avoid joining a gang and providing guidance in education and career opportunities.

Champions in Action uses premier soccer camps for two reasons:

1. It’s a passion of the youth. Throughout Latin America, soccer is a deep-seated passion that crosses boundaries of race, gender, socio-economic status, and language.

2. It’s a platform for mentors. Studies have proven the power of mentorship. Mentoring relationships increase interpersonal skills, self-confidence, and the cognitive and emotional development of youth.
