Global Teens head to Japan, South Korea, Colombia, Senegal
This summer over 40 teens from high schools in the Greater Seattle area will head to Asia, Africa and Latin America to learn about teen life, serve in the community and explore social issues such as environment, disaster, peace, energy and poverty. The Global Teens Program of the YMCA of Greater Seattle, which includes four months of pre-trip training in leadership, culture and language, will expose teens to other countries and engage members of this next generation in issues confronting our world.
The Northshore YMCA Leadership Development Director Trevor Salayi will be co-leading the trip to Colombia, South America this summer.
A few slots remain on these global adventures, interested parents and teens should apply now by contacting David Kelly-Hedrick at (206) 382-5343 or Trevor Salayi at (425) 485-9797.
