GOJoven ROY Team Engages New Leaders in Sexual and Reproductive Health

GOJoven Belize 1The GOJoven Reaching Out to Youth (ROY) team recently added nine new volunteers to their team of youth dedicated to working in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in Belize.

GOJoven Belize 5Members of the GOJoven Reaching Our Youth (ROY) Dangriga 2012 Team expanded their reach and sparked the interest of potential new leaders at the Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Radio Outreach Day. At SRH Radio Outreach Day, more than 100 people visited the GOJoven ROY booth to engage in conversation and ask questions about their work. Many adolescents expressed interest in joining the team’s efforts. As a result of this interest, the GOJoven ROY team organized a small training for youth in the community and now has nine new volunteers. Five of these new volunteers joined the team at a booth at the annual Benguche Community Fair.

GOJoven Belize 3We at GOJoven are very proud of the team for responding to the interest that these young people showed in the ROY Team’s activities. The ROY Team showed great leadership by being flexible and willing to engage in a new activity that fits the needs of local youth.
