Apr 30, 2008 — Today, we continue our occasional series of reports and interviews that focus on North Country activists who are making a difference around the world. Todd Moe profiles a group in the southern Adirondacks working to improve life in Central America by preparing the next generation of leadership. Nueva Esperanza del Norte, or "New Hope from the North," was founded two years ago and is based in Warrensburg. It works to replace a legacy of despair among young Central Americans with the possibilities generated by an educational experience in the U.S. Todd talks with founder Kevin O'Brien and two students from El Salvador, Marta Cuerta and Samuel Reyes. Kevin O'Brien will talk about the creation of "Nueva Esperanza del Norte" this Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton at 10:30 am.
