Descúbrete, a PEACE Punta de Mita program enriching the lives of local women and youths

article-image

PEACE Punta de Mita is a well known organization in the area. Founded back in 2013 by a small group of Punta de Mita area homeowners who, as seasonal residents, recognized the need to help to improve the social needs of the three Punta de Mita area villages. Over the years, new residents have joined this non profit, contributing with generous donations and valuable participation on PEACE programs and operations.

One of the many programs that PEACE has put in place is Descúbrete (Discover yourself in English), a personal growth counseling program that seeks to enrich the lives of local women, youths and in the near future men, via a cohesive program focused on self-discovery, self-reliance and empowerment.

The main goal is to help them gain insight into what is driving them, their motivations, their skills and abilities, strengths and weaknesses, and the patterns of behavior that keep them from achieving their potential. By understanding themselves, they find out what they really want, what is preventing them from having it, and how to overcome obstacles. This powerful program has been implemented around the world with much success.

When this program was originally stablished in the Punta Mita area, it was targeted at women who would meet in groups guided by facilitators, to share their experiences, assess their skills and personal attributes and generally help and encourage each other on their paths toward personal growth and more satisfying lives for themselves, their families and their communities. This initial stage was so successful that after one year, it was expanded to include youths aged 13 to 19.  

For each Descúbrete session a group of trained and experienced counselors and psychologists facilitate the workshops, and the 2017 edition of this program is about to begin which promises to be another wonderful series of self-discovery and empowerment for the local community.

We invite you to learn more about this program and the rest of the activities that PEACE Punta de Mita develops, and why not, to support them, we all can contribute so these wonderful initiatives continue improving the quality of live of the community.
