"At GYV, I made the best friends of my life - from the USA and abroad. My new friends made me feel supported and secure in myself."
“I learned how to talk to people, how to ask them questions about their culture. We learned how to work and Live Side by Side. To me, that’s the first step towards peace.”
“Learning about all these cultures was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Through my friends and this experience, I gained so much knowledge and wisdom. ”
“At GYV I learned that I can change the world through small actions, right in my town. I started my own non-profit called New Vision, which uses social media to connect youth from around the world.”
“At GYV I felt comfortable being me, and I actually discovered an even better version of myself.  I became a better listener, a kinder friend and a braver leader.”
