Fraternal Encounters (Panama)

The Association of Youth and Students for Peace; IAYSP Panama carried out last February a continuation of the Fraternal Encounters on Saturdays through Zoom.

Fraternal Encounters is a youth space where interesting and everyday topics are exposed for people, in which opinions, comments, or reflections are offered. It is also a space to share experiences during the week and to perform dynamics that strengthen trust and friendship ties.

On this occasion, people who had attended the previous month attended again within this activity. The topics covered were: gratitude, as a type of attitude that leads people to be happier and more optimistic, and proactivity, as a habit that encourages young people to make better decisions based on taking responsibility for their lives.

The fraternal encounters, besides being an entertaining space rich in teachings, also provide an opportunity to strengthen friendly relationships with young people that links them to future IAYSP activities.
