We are excited to start a new opportunity this year – our first annual award from MNP for the Global Youth Citizen Award. This award is open to high school students, who can apply to our office to be eligible. The winner receives a trip with Kids Hope Ethiopia during our summer Global Youth Expedition in July.
The Global Youth Expedition is a special opportunity for young adults aged 16-25 to travel together and work with the students in our Education Support Centers in Africa.
One purpose of the 2014 Global Youth Expedition is an exchange between North American Culture and Ethiopian Culture. The students in our Education Support Centers will be excited to learn about North America, and our Student Volunteers will each be giving small presentations about their lives in North America, their family, heritage, and the city they are from.
Other special activities we have planned this year are community service projects organized by the students and program managers in Ethiopia, a Soccer Tournament Day, Scavenger Hunt, Field trips, and a small Theatre or Skit day.
Congratulations to Cherilyn for winning the Global Youth Citizen Award this year – we look forward to having her with us in July with a great group of youth who are making a difference!
