This project, "Vivir para jugar, jugar para vivir" is a three day sports camp for teenagers from the Dominican Republic. The camp will give 24 teenagers the opportunity to play and learn about new sports, as well as participate in educational activities relating to nutrition, exercise, hygiene, sportsmanship, and teambuilding. The camp will focus on building skills in three sports: soccer, volleyball, and kickball. Other recreational activities that the youth will participate in include yoga and track and field based competitions. The main objective of this project is to promote an active lifestyle among youth as an alternative to the unhealthy lifestyle choices common among teenagers here in the Dominican Republic, such as early pregnancy or drug use. This camp will also provide youth with the knowledge and motivation to start an athletic team in their own communities, thus multiplying the positive effects brought upon by the camp. Through promoting sports and healthy living, the camp will help the participants build self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and appreciate the importance of working as a team. The grant will help pay for the room and board of the participants, as well as purchase some of the necessary materials. Each community that sends teenagers to the camp will be responsible for paying for the participants' round trip transportation, and will be actively involved in planning activities so that the camp participants can continue sharing lessons learned.
