  1. Powerful and substantive video on such an important topic. So many youth are labeled “at-risk.” Finally we get to hear what one Honduran youth thinks about this label. Amazing work.

    In working with ” high risk” youth in United States, I now refer to them as “at promise” youth. It’s more strength-based and reflects their resiliency!!! Thanks for sharing how it feels to overcome the pressures of growing up in yor country!
