The Second National Youth Forum of Guatemala organized by the Coordinating Committee of the Youth Network (YN), the event fulfilled all its expectations. Was held on May 11 and 12 at San Jorge Muxbal (Guatemala), with 39 participants young scouts, men and women, from different groups, and an organizing team of 5 people.
They were able to conceptually address the issue of youth participation, comment the draft of the Interamerican Policy of Youth Participation, deepen into the functioning of youth networks in the country and the region, among others.
An important point in the event was the official launch of the strategy YN-2013 "Turning ideas into projects" with which it is presented the document “Project Presentation Template", both documents created with the aim of promoting the creation of scout projects in the patrols or teams of each section, the institution, and in their own communities.
Finally, we took an important democratic process to elect the National Coordinating Committee of the Youth Network. In which each ballot had the opportunity to express their point of view, and the participants decided through their vote for the team who shall serve for the period 2013-2014: Angel Laynez as Coordinator, Paul Aguilar as Communicator, and Jessica Almengor as Secretary.
