After an admission process of almost two months, in which more than 300 applicants participated, the school laid its first stone in July 2015, with young people from 12 provinces of the three regions of Ecuador. Month by month, these young people between 18 and 35 years of age met for a weekend, starting their work at noon on Friday until Sunday afternoon, they shared teachings, joy and friendship.
