Last year, Juan Bol (’17, Belize) participated in a regional OYW assembly in Trinidad and Tobago. There, he had the opportunity to present his project called PODER and meet young social entrepreneurs just like him. “I had two principal takeaways from the event,” Juan said. “The first is that contacts are very important, and the second is that collaboration is a new currency – lending a hand and exchanging knowledge are the new ways to help others globally.”
