Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Arturo Soto's work was prepared when Arturo Soto was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Arturo Soto is changing an entire city in Chile, starting by changing the reality of its most vulnerable young people whose main alternatives, like his own, were poverty, drug addiction, and crime. Through his Bodyboarding School and the coordination of public, private and civil institutions, he is engaging youth to revitalize the city of Antofagasta and create their own new opportunities.
