“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people,
people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.”   
~ Joanna Macy

Our Model

At a time when there are more young people on earth than ever before, education is critical. Education not just in the form of knowledge, but also the tools, attitudes and values that will allow our young people to move with skill and clear vision from a place of wisdom to take compassionate action, leading the transition towards a healthy, thriving and peaceful future.

SERES experiential programs in transformative leadership and sustainability education meet this critical need.
Focusing primarily on youth from underprivileged and marginalized communities, these programs help to awaken,
activate and empower young people
to take action on those issues that most impact them and their communities.

In hundreds of communities across Guatemala and El Salvador, these programs have been a catalyst for innovative, youth-led community impact projects that are building stronger communities, reducing environmental destruction and creating climate-conscious citizens.

We provide transformative leadership and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) learning opportunities to youth in Central America with poor access to traditional schools and/or the quality of education required to be active and positive contributors to society.
