This is an organisation that draws together young people from a wide range of cultures with the purpose of developing their leadership skills but more importantly heightening their awareness, acceptance and celebration of difference and diversity within humankind. The results have been and continue to go beyond and preconceptions that I had prior to engaging in the program . The 3 year commitment is a key hallmark of the program. Each year we look forward to rejoining the groups whom we met with the year previously to furher cement our ties across the globe.
