Champions in Action
Champions in Action connects the disadvantaged youth of Guatemala to mentors through soccer. The goal is to establish a long-term mentoring relationship that will promote positive change for the well being of these youth and their communities. The mentor serves as an advocate for their lives, focusing on holistic transformation psychologically, emotionally, economically, and spiritually. In a nation with a homicide rate that ranks higher than an average war zone, Guatemala is plagued with extreme violence.
