Push Factors of Migration

Kay Andrade-Eekhoff

Based in one of the most violent countries in the world, Kay works to end the cycle of violence through CRS' YouthBuild Program. Through YouthBuild, she helps young people avoid gangs and recieve the life skill necessary to finish their education and potentially start their own businesses.

Rick Jones

Having lived in El Salvador for more than 20 years, Rick has born witness to the endemic violence plauging Central America, which has forced tens of thousands of families to migrate north. Rick's work with CRS addresses violence as a root cause of migration and includes violence-prevention programming that gives young people job training and shows them an alternative to gang life.
