Students from the CYCC participate in a hands-on class to learn about watershed management. With the support of Aguas y Aguas de Pereira, a CYCC partner organization, the youth learned how to measure water parameters by measuring flow velocity (number of liters of water passing through during one second), flow width, and flow depth.

USAID/Colombia and the U.S. Forest Service are implementing the CYCC through the Colombia Forests and Wetlands Activity. The CYCC trains rural youth by providing them with personal, professional, and natural resource management skills and tools that enable them to enter the labor market, diversify their livelihoods, and become environmental leaders in their territories. 

This photo was taken in the Reserva Lisbran, Corregimiento la Florida, Pereira, Risaralda where the youth strengthened their skills and acquired knowledge through their passion and commitment to natural resource management and environmental conservation.
