VOTE FOR SCHOOLBOX'S IYES!
Please take a minute and VOTE for SchoolBOX's IYES Program on the Aviva Community Fund. Indigenous Youth Empowering Students (IYES) is an international youth development program run through the grassroots Canadian Charity, SchoolBOX INC. IYES provides Indigenous youth from Canada the opportunity to create meaningful change in the lives of Central American children through education.
IYES volunteers enjoy an amazing life experience, improve the lives of others, and become leaders of change in their home communities.
IYES participants learn about their heritage and traditions and prepare a cultural presentation to take to Nicaragua. In Nicaragua, the IYES group works with community members and SchoolBOX staff to build a school in an impoverished community. There they share their stories in a cultural exchange, while building life long bonds.
Participants are guided through discussions and workshops on Indigenous leadership, personal leadership philosophy, and creating a vision for their home communities.
