Our Peace Building Session at GYV is now officially underway!! In this dynamic and diverse group of 53 participants, eight states and eleven nations are represented. Our dedicated, highly qualified, and experienced staff come from all over the United States, Slovakia, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Canada, and Iraq. Everyone is very excited and eager to learn from one another; a sense of community is already staring to form within the group.
After a dinner of roasted veggies, salad, and pizza, participants headed up the hill for our welcome program which included some group building games, skits, and introductions by our staff. In the following video, our staff are introduced to the participants and we all greet one another for the first time. Tomorrow is orientation day. Stay tuned for details and photos!
