We are excited to announce that the Global Youth Citizen Award for 2015 has been awarded by MNP to a high school student in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
Myah has been given this award, and will be joining our Global Youth Expedition in August.
Matt (MNP), Myah (winner!) and Lyndon (Kids Hope Ethiopia)
Myah also participated in our November 2014 evening at Medalta with her concept to help change the life of an Ethiopian family with $1000. Her project came in 2nd place and she was able to present her ideas to the crowd. She’s turning into quite a humanitarian!
Thanks to Matt, Chris and Ron from MNP for this 2nd annual award to pay the expenses for a deserving youth from Medicine Hat to travel to Ethiopia with the youth expedition.
There is still room to join the expedition
but time is getting short so contact Deb
as soon as you can to get in on the experience of a life-time!
Thanks Bobbi-Jo for the great pictures!
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!
