CASA | Youth and Women's Rights
CASA’s programs operate under a community-based education model that teaches others to teach. The model has enabled generations of CASA’s staff to transform their own lives and the lives many others in some of the most remote communities of Mexico.
Our community center and main offices are located in a working class neighborhood in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. The team travels regularly throughout the state as well as other parts of the country.
CASA’s Youth Promoter model places at-risk youth in leadership positions to help themselves by helping others.
Promoters are trained in reproductive justice and health education, and apply their skills in schools, homes, community centers and on the streets.
They use a variety of teaching methods including art, theater, radio, participatory workshops, health fairs and public awareness campaigns to spread their knowledge.
Youth and adults alike have the opportunity to talk about myths and misconceptions around taboo subjects. Promoters are trained and supported by social workers and psychologists.
