our story

Our story of Seres began back in 2009 when two young activists responded to the urgent need of Central America’s youth to learn the skills needed to confront mounting injustices and growing uncertainty as a result of rising inequality and climate change. Using education and leadership as main tools, we started a process to engage and mobilize young people to take action.

our purpose

Our mission is to cultivate and catalyze youth leaders to build more just and sustainable communities in Guatemala and El Salvador. 

Young people become influential and impactful leaders. By providing them with resources, skills, and support services, we encourage active engagement towards improving health and educational outcomes, reducing inequality, and spurring economic growth – all while building resilience and protecting our ecosystems.

Together, they form a movement of leaders who drive sustainability and democracy, who are involved in decision making, addressing social challenges, and creating new solutions. They are changing the course of their communities.


how do we lead change - our impact

IF at-risk youth are provided with resources, skills, and opportunities to develop experience leading local projects THEN a greater number of young people will invest in building a better future for themselves, improving community resilience and decreasing youth migration. BECAUSE our experience shows that providing an ecosystem of services and peers that support their growth and development increases their will to remain and leverage their communities. 

We believe in long-term impact to build an empowered generation of future leaders  that are creating more resilient and sustainable communities in Central America.

Since 2009, we have engaged more than 5,500 young leaders, facilitated over 110 programs and supported hundreds of community action plans that address the most pressing global challenges.
