Cable a Tierra- Workshops among peers- A new and collaborative
experience in dealing with Adolescence Integral Health. Comarca Andina
del Paralelo 42º- Río Negro/ Chubut.
A non-formal and collaborative program is initiated bearing in mind
the need to tackle subjects related to Adolescents’ Integral Health
outside schools or educational institutions, by means of a group of
teenagers who named themselves “Los Cable a Tierra” in “Workshops
among peers”.
A relation model is proposed, based on knowledge, thought and respect
within collaborative surroundings, which by means of a dynamic and
participative process will supply them with the proper tools for
analysis and criticism. Teenagers are encouraged to think, discuss and
get information about their sexuality and the risks and consequences
of the misuse of both drugs and alcohol thus promoting an adequate
psychosocial development which will enable them to solve the main
problems of their age in a thoughtful way.
Cable a Tierra choose preventive material which will be used in the
workshops given to 7th, 8th and 9th year students once the initial
identification profile of the teenagers has been done ( the aim is to
know, understand and act, by means of a training process and analysis
of reality using as a starting point games and videos created by Cable
a Tierra).
On looking into the way we worked and by observing and adapting our
program and activities, we realized that many teachers did not help or
take part in the activities carried out by Cable a Tierra in the
workshops due to prejudice or a lack of knowledge. In order for more
youths to join in, a training course for teachers was established with
a professional interdisciplinary team sponsored by the Ministries of
Education of Río Negro and Chubut Provinces. The program “Educate to
Prevent” used an integral model based on the promotion of health,
training agents in schools who will collaborate in the training of the
teenagers in a participative and active way.
Teenagers are taught discipline and qualities which will probably last
a lifetime. The above mentioned activities were an eye opener for the
youngsters who carried out the workshops (Cable a Tierra) and the
whole community.
