Cabrini College students created a video about Catholic Relief Services’ Youth Builders program, which was started in 2007 in El Salvador to respond to violence and other challenges facing youth. Later expanded to Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala, the program targets gang members and other at-risk youth. Evaluations show that 84 percent of the participants finish their secondary degree as a result of program, and 58 percent of trainees find employment.
