We have been working with other organizations to support projects, such as the Worldwide UNESCO Club Youth Multimedia Competition. in the past years, some of our projects included a Robotics Project and Competition (Earth Rover) which involved multiple Universities in the Ukraine, Moldova and Romania and reached over 10,000 youth. We also have been active with a very unique Learning Academy “Atlantykron” just celebrated its 26th year. This academy brings 400 youth, professors, and experts in their field, together for a 10 day learning program in a natural environment. World Genesis Foundation joined UNESCO Center for Peace as well as other partners, supports and friends, in Washington “First Lady’s Youth Infusion Summit.” This program brought some of the First Ladies from Africa together with youth in creating a platform to discuss ideas and solutions, bridging minds and generations. World Genesis Foundation partnered with UNESCO Center for Peace to launch JumpStart, a project creating opportunities for youth to work on live projects with the guidance of professors and experts, jumpstarting the missions of not-for -profit organizations and creating internet solutions. We also connected with local supporters in Arizona for a fundraising project, “Bracelets of Hope,” with much success.

Reviews for World Genesis Foundation
I've got in contact with World Genesis Foundation at the Atlantykron Summer Academy in Capidava, Romania, this past summer and i really enjoyed the time spent there. The event gathers young people and not only, from different parts of the country and the world, people that have the thirst for knowledge in different domains such as astronomy, science fiction, photography,radio and so on. I loved what they did back there, the way they connect these people is just wonderful! I think it changes the destiny of a young fellow that comes on that island where the camp takes place, because the way this works is unique, it tries actually to make them discover what they really love to do and endorse it. Like others said here, World Genesis Foundation has been taking the right steps of bringing the youth together through education, making them more aware of what they are capable to do in their lives. I'm really happy to work with them and looking forward to continue my collaboration in future events and i really encourage everyone to engage in their programs.
I had the pleasure to get to know the organization as part of the UNESCO Clubs conference in New York City. I had an absolutely amazing time there, met amazing people I still keep in touch with and found out more about the Foundation's mission. I am proud to continue working with World Genesis Foundation and can recommend anyone to engage in its unique and inspiring programmes.
In today's generation, the World Genesis Foundation is among those that continue to support the development of the youth and the establishment of peace worldwide. The World Genesis Foundation and the US Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations manage to reach out to a global community who share such passion of making the world a better place. In fact, they are able to reach and help out vibrant young people from as far as India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Russia, Italy and many other countries. As a young student leader from Southeast Asia, I can personally testify to how WGF, and its passionate team, has enabled youth like me to become better servant leaders. They have many projects, some of which are youth camps and international youth competitions. Peace is much needed in our world today. I personally attest to how such Foundation, especially under the guidance of warm-spirited, generous and peace-loving Ms. Heather Caton, is able to further this mission for the world.
I volunteered twice from Ireland as photographer for the Atlantykron annual summer academy in Romania sponsored by The World Genesis Foundation.I was welcomed by friendly volunteers and enthusiastic participants all excited to gain and share new knowledge and skills. I was very much impressed with the organisations high standard and variety of academic programmes that were offered at the academy. The World Genesis Foundation from what I saw definitely adheres to it's mission of ' leaving no child without hope for the future' and I look forward to volunteering with them again.
It is very important to give equal opportunities to young people in the world. Unfortunately, not everybody is able to pay for education and get some useful and good knowledge. World Genesis Foundation improving this situation with there educational programs. I have been taking part in the “Atlantykron” cultural program and a saw a lot interest on the faces of students to the subject. It is also a way to make new friends from different countries. And this is a basis of peas from my point of view.

World Genesis Foundation really changed for good the live of tens of thousand children and young people. It organizes important events for youth, as Atlantykron Summer Academy in Romania - an event where I am involved since years.
World Genesis Foundation also puts together cultural, science, arts and sports personalities from all over the world with young people, and also brings together young people from all over the world. It radically changed the destiny of a lot of youth, that succeeded to reach their goals in life. In conclusion, I can say that World Genesis Foundation really counts in the world.

The World Genesis Foundation gives hope and provides vital support for youths around the world. WGF youth programs are giving participants great opportunities to learn and grow their skills in the world-wide community. The young who participate in WGF programs go forward with many more opportunities in front of them as they become adults. These young bright lights are the future of an educated, heart-centered, evolved Human Race.

Support for young people is now very topical issue. In my opinion WGF makes a good deal giving impetus active youth worldwide. I am happy that the world has such an organization. I am the winner of the essay contest. I want to say that the organizers always quick to respond, answered my questions and helped. Although the time difference we have is great. I am from Ukraine and I thank you for World Genesis Foundation.

World Genesis Foundation is an organization which not only supports and encourages youths, but also helps to express your own views on different matters. This year I participated at the Worldwide Future of Education Youth Essay Contest organized by WGF and UNESCO and had a chance to write my views, my ideas and my imagination regarding the future of education. After the submission of essay I realized how much can be done in order to change the education for the better. By organizing such remarkable competitions and programs, WGF reminds us that we should put maximum effort to make our future brighter. Moreover, people working in this organization are very responsible and supportive. They do their best in order to achieve their goals. It is my great honor to meet such an amazing team, who is working on a remarkable mission.

World Genesis Foundation is an incredible and life changing non-for -profit organization. It helps to empower young people from marginalized and under-served regions. It gearing towards seeing that every person obtains opportunities in life. It is opening doors to many young people for them to realize that they are capable of achieving their goals and dreams.
The founder, Heather Caton, is an incredible talented selfless young leader who works to see other people are obtaining life changing opportunities. She will not stop at anything to be a mentor and a social worker. I highly recommend this Foundation.
