The World Youth Alliance values the commitment of its members to advocate for human dignity.

The WYALA is growing day after day, and we are grateful to announce the new chapter at the National University of the East’s Chapter, in Paraguay, whose leaders are Andrea, Fernando, Indianara, Jadiyi, Jazmin, Rocio and Susana. Let’s meet the new leaders!

He met WYA in 2020, and joined the Certified Training Program in 2021, because of the philosophical approach to studying human dignity.
