Here's what we've learned so far about what programs youth want to see in the community:
Red de Jóvenes (Youth Network)
This group has brought local youth together and supported them through different activities. The MCF has participated in the activities directed by the MV Youth Network during the pandemic and led virtual brainstorming sessions.

Escape and Alianza Monteverde
Alianza Monteverde is an alliance of young local businessmen and women who have created packages including the different tourism experiences they offer, and use part of their sales profits to invest in the well-being and mental health of young people. Recently they held an event for 20 young people from our community in their first edition of Escape. Boys and girls ages 15 through 19 had the opportunity to participate in a fun, action-packed weekend where they explored topics like mental health, empathic communication and emotional awareness through outdoor activities.
The Alliance is a fiscal agency affiliate of the Monteverde Community Fund.
WPI Interns 2021
Our latest group of interns from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute applied 22 interviews with youth and community leaders. These helped determine how prepared the youth feel for the future and how to best prepare them for any obstacles they may encounter in their careers.
