The SERES experience has inspired millions to contribute in personal and meaningful ways towards transforming our systems, societies and cultures to create a world brimming with well-being.


The SERES mission is to cultivate and catalyze youth leaders to create more just and sustainable communities in Central America.

We work with youth from low-income peripheral or rural communities in Guatemala and El Salvador, focusing on areas where increasing violence, income disparities and limited economic opportunities are placing increasing numbers of youth at-risk to the influence of gangs, crime and other impacts of social disintegration. Using our Framework for Change, we work with these “unlikely” leaders to unleash a generation of youth who have the skills, sense of self and spark to address tough challenges and initiate innovative and creative solutions that can reshape our society.
