The Latin Summit

The Latin Summit is an annual meeting of people who train youth leaders in Latin America. [click photo to see large version] The common denominators that bring us together are a) a willingness to work together with others toward a common goal, and b) we all love working with young people.

Underwritten by a generous and visionary foundation, 15 to 20 of us get together to refocus our goals, renew our friendship, make sure we're not reinventing the wheel and encourage each other. Even though we are in different countries and from a variety of organizations the Summit provides a space where we can align visions, focus on the important issues and not "reinvent the wheel".

From the relationships fostered at this Summit quite a few important partnerships have developed that have changed the landscape of youth ministry in the Spanish-speaking world . Over the years we have become friends so it also a lot of fun.
