The experience in itself was amazing and I learned so much from prominent YMCA leaders to youth from all over the world. We had an opportunity to have first hand cultural exchange with over 60 countries and I got to travel to other countries for the first time.
With the training I received which consisted of advocacy, Christian emphasis, communications and everything in between, I am more equipped to reach more beneficiaries & thus make a greater impact in our communities.
Thus far I have used the skills and knowledge acquired to create trainings that are specially requested for local, regional, national and international volunteers and visitors.
It was an intense journey, with a lot of assignments & projects & the work continues even after you graduate however it was well worth it. I am blessed & am ever so grateful for this opportunity.
