Building on the success of the Loiza-La Perla Ideas Box, in May 2019 LWB US hosted “¡Empréndete Loíza!”, a series of workshops facilitated by experts from across the island that focused on designing creative solutions for specific community challenges. The winning team, Proyecto 187, designed a project that uses photography as a means to reduce violence in their community. Expanding on this successful program, two communities benefiting from the support of the Ideas Box resources organized summer camps in 2019 for youth and young adults. El Ancón de Loíza, a community association, organized workshops on sustainable agriculture, health literacy, entrepreneurship, culture and dance, design thinking, and marketing. Danaliz, a community leader in the Sector 23 y las Gardenias neighborhood, organized two summer camps: one for kids aged five to eleven and the other for kids aged twelve to twenty-two. These camps focused on sports, environmental stewardship, healthy eating, and entrepreneurship.
