New Youth Coordinator

Vida Del Norte has been busy over the last couple of months with reorganizing and recruiting new members. In February, we had our annual retreat where we discussed data that helps guide the process of supporting the needs of our youth.

Vida has been seeking individuals who are passionate about the work that we do and we are happy to announce our new youth coordinator, Sonya Arguello. Sonya is native of the Questa community; she understands the culture and is eager and ready to put the work into community. We are excited to have her, as she brings some good experience through the professional world as well as life experience. She has begun to learn the ropes of what coalition work entails and will be heading up our summer program in collaboration with Localogy and Questa Creative Council. Welcome aboard, Sonya!

Vida Del Norte will kick off summer with The Fish Fiesta on June 1 at Eagle Rock Lake, from 9 a.m. to noon, so come on out and enjoy some good family fun! We will have a small lunch available, and prizes for different events. We will also have kiddie fishing rods.

Vida Camp will begin July 1 and runs through the July 31 Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Base camp will be at the Youth Center, next to the Questa Library. To sign up please visit https://www.localogy.org/vida.

Vida also has some exciting new things on the horizon and more information will be released as we get closer to finalizing activities.
