ABOUT US

JLC is creating a society of leaders to create change in communities.

JLC is a non-governmental non-profit organization whose primary purpose is the prevention of human rights violations. JLC is an organization led by young professionals who use the knowledge learned to agents of change in a society with a high degree of social injustice. JLC was founded in 2003 by the management of several young people who identified the need for education for sustainable development for vulnerable groups.

Also, JLC provides the opportunity to create young leaders committed to these communities by providing workshops and other projects based on the community that is creating a strong sense of values and to educate young leaders about their humans rights. Through this, JLC provides hope to help build a society respectful of human rights and knowledge of how best to protect their own from outside influences that have the potential to damage their fragile cultural existence. Working with indigenous communities, JLC gives them the tools and skills to become self-sufficient and to promote a network of solidarity among young Hondurans, regardless of their origins and differences.

WHY DO WE DO IT?

To create a society respectful of human rights

This project was born from the initiative of young leaders who saw the need for change. They visualized the need for a protective country of human rights, gender equality, domestic violence, including the most vulnerable parts of society and equal participation of all its members, helping to build a true democracy.

Many young people have the energy and the will to engage in philanthropic projects and helping others who need it most, knowing that young Hondurans are not involved in the machinery of the democratic system, JLC provides spaces to forge leaders committed to values that guarantee a society respectful of human rights.
