Social Enterprise in S. America

On January 23rd, 2015 we hosted our second annual Intro to Social Enterprise workshop for Amigos' Youth Ambassadors from Paraguay and Uruguay! 26 youth went through a 4 hour training, learning how to use social entrepreneurship as a tool for creating sustainable changes in their home communities. In the words of one participant: "I started thinking about my projects in a totally different way. The Youth SEED experience helped me a lot with everything about resources and money and about the service I will be offering."
