YOUTH LEADERS EXPLORING THE WORLD THROUGH ROOTS WORK & SERVICE LEARNING!
We are extremely excited to embark on our journey to the beautiful and culturally rich country of Ghana, West Africa! There our youth will engage in service work, lead youth empowerment workshops, explore historical sites rooted in a powerful past and experience the vibrant traditions of the Ghanaian people. The trip is scheduled for August 5-14th, 2017.
Our intentions are to provide our youth with an inter-disciplinary experience that will shift their global perspective and help prepare them for a future as global and domestic change agents! It is our hope that all 10 of our youth leaders will participate in this unique learning opportunity regardless of their financial standing.
The gift of travel is rich. This educational experience will offer youth:
• Fuel to change the narrative of youth of color stereotypes
• Exchange with different cultures, people, and parts of the world that will expand their minds
• A widened social and professional network
• A fresh perspective on American life
• Valuable experience for their resumes
