The Academias Vida program is designed to meet kids where they are in the community and connect with them through sports. For many children, this activity is not only a healthy way to spend time, but also opportunity for them to grow and reach new achievements in sports.
Sports and Discipleship.
Students get to receive coaching in sports, participate on a league team together, and learn about God's love from a Christ following mentor, their Coach. Many of the children would not have the opportunity to play in a league without the program, much less have a caring mentor in their life who shows them how to walk with Jesus. The volunteers who are connecting with these students are trained extensively so they are fully equipped to teach, mentor and disciple these students.
Guatemala and beyond
Not only is Academias Vida growing in Guatemala, but they are sharing the vision for this effective program with Youth For Christ ministries in all of South America and currently helping them to develop in Copán, Honduras and Juarez, Mexico.
On November 16-19, the Academias Vida is hosting a sports camp to reach at-risk youth. We are raising funds to provide scholarships for the camp and grow the program for new students to join the teams.
