My Health… My Responsibility: building emotional skills 

Emotional skills are fundamental to the development of young people, as they allow them to manage their feelings effectively, establish healthy relationships and make informed decisions.

By having a good understanding of their emotions and knowing how to express them appropriately, young people can develop greater self-confidence to face life’s challenges. In addition, learning emotional skills also helps young people develop empathy and compassion for others, which in turn allows them to build more meaningful relationships and collaborate effectively on a team.

For the Juan Bautista Gutiérrez Foundation (FJBG), and for its Vice President, Felipe Antonio Bosch Gutiérrez, the comprehensive development of young people needs to be an important part of any educational and training program. This is precisely the case for the My Health…My Responsibility Program, which emphasizes four essential skills:


Within the framework of the program, the FJBG focuses on training young people on the importance of self-esteem, understanding that this is an essential skill for personal and professional development. Self-esteem refers to self-assessment and self-confidence, and its importance lies in the fact that it allows people to face life’s challenges with a positive attitude and to set realistic goals.

To achieve this, the Foundation offers specific workshops in which young people are taught to know themselves, to value their abilities and achievements, to face difficulties and to develop a positive attitude towards life. 


FJBG understands that effective communication is also an essential skill for the development of the youngest. The ability to communicate clearly and effectively allows them to establish healthy relationships, resolve conflicts, and make the best decisions based on the information they have.


It is through decision-making that young people can set their goals, face challenges, and plan for their future. The ability to assess risks, identify alternatives, and assess the consequences of their actions enables young people to make informed and responsible decisions. In addition, decision-making also helps them develop their confidence and the ability to take responsibility. 

Life project

The choice of a life project is one of those transcendental decisions that young people must make in their lives. A life project is a long-term plan that helps young people set goals and objectives and have a plan to achieve them. The correct choice of a life project allows young people to develop their potential and find their true calling, which allows them to achieve greater satisfaction and happiness in their lives.

The objective of the program by promoting these four aspects is to provide young people with the necessary tools to improve their self-esteem, face risk situations appropriately and make decisions in line with their life goals. The program’s workshops are free and designed to help them reach their full potential.
