Review for Islands Society, Kailua-Kona, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a participant in the Pacific Young Leaders on Disarmament program. When it comes to Asia-Pacific issues in general, the region is very diverse and so oftentimes the voices of smaller island countries aren't heard as loudly and especially those of the youth. The program does an excellent job of providing a platform for the Pacific Island youths like myself. I could not have published a blog article on a divisive issue facing the Conference on Disarmament (CD) and written a statement to the CD --outlining the concerns of Pacific Islanders-- without the guidance and networking the program provided. Through PacSoc, I have access to disarmament experts and diplomats, whom I am able to ask for interviews and direct mentorship. PacSoc also tries to create spaces for my classmates and me to have discussion despite our distant time zones. :)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create connections between program participants and actual Pacific Islander experts/government officials/diplomats.
