A victim of abuse and bullying, Bruno signed up for EquipYouth—a program created by the International Youth Foundation (IYF), with support from the Caterpillar Foundation. The initiative teaches valuable, in-demand technical skills and helps students gain confidence, set goals and manage their emotions. Throughout the program, Bruno began opening up and making friends. "Even the teachers noticed that I had changed," Bruno says. When the course ended, Bruno was praised for being one of the program's most dedicated students.
