Our goal is to cultivate leadership skills and characteristics to engage in advocacy and activism. Fueling curiosity, creating connections, and learning by service creating personal and societal transformations.
Sin Fronteras Youth Group is a group of local high schoolers held every Wednesday afternoon during the school year. The youth group is full of life and laughter as they gather for the weekly meetings at the Hope CommUnity Center.
The program is directed by Nilka Melendez, Director of Youth and Family Services, assisted by several staff members and AmeriCorps members who help facilitate the weekly meetings and the many other activities and service projects of Sin Fronteras.
The Sin Fronteras program gives teenagers a variety of opportunities to gain experience about self and others, make meaningful connections, and become leaders in the community. They serve as participants in our Social Justice Group, Theatre Group, Toy Sale, Yard Sale, and Senior Retreats along with many other events throughout the year.
The youth of Sin Fronteras also serve as a source of inspiration to everyone here at Hope. Mostly from immigrant families, these young people show such heart and determination as they find their way in a culture that is not always welcoming.
