CONCAUSA is an initiative organized by América Solidaria, with the support of ECLAC and UNICEF. Its purpose is to mobilize youth across the Americas to present the work they are doing volunteering in their communities on projects that address the Sustainable Development Goals in some way.
A panel of UN and America Solidarity representatives will select the top 17 groups from the Americas to participate in the all-expenses paid trip to Santiago, Chile the last week of November.
In addition, we have two 2-week free leadership summer camps in Washington, DC, between July 2-13 and July 16-27 (Monday-Friday, 9am – 1pm). Youths could attend either session – the content will be the same, game-based participatory workshops and activities. We welcome participants from any region of the U.S. to attend these camps but they will be responsible for their own travel and housing arrangements. To apply, please fill out the following form.
Applications for CONCAUSA 2018 are open until May 25th! All teams who apply will be invited to attend the DC leadership camps and will be considered for the trip to Chile. Apply today in teams of 3 youth with an adult educational supervisor at www.concausa2030.com. At least one team member should be a Spanish speaker as these activities will be in Spanish.
