This program was created in 2005 as a specific and specialized response to teenagers, men and women, 13 and older, in high social risk conditions, by the confluence of several factors:
Teenagers and young people come from communities of the Greater Metropolitan Area (San José, Cartago, Alajuela, Heredia) and the Caribbean (Pococí).
