As part of the Y of Central Florida’s local focus and global impact, we’re excited to be sending 14 promising high school students and five young YMCA professionals to the 2013 YMCA Global Teen Leadership Conference in Prague, Czech Republic.
During the week-long August event, the students will join with 10,000 peers worldwide to share their faith, exchange ideas and learn how they CAN make a difference through the YMCA movement.
As chaperones, the young Y professionals accompanying the group will also enjoy opportunities for networking, learning and broadening their global vision.
Rabecca Rein, a 16-year-old Prague delegate, is really excited about this opportunity. “To me the Y is a place where you can get help with problems. The Y welcomes you with open arms, and is a safe place to come. I really want this chance to learn how to give back to the Y and the South Orlando community and show them how much they mean to me. When I help out at Y events after I return from Prague, I’ll use what I learn to get more kids involved in everything the Y has to offer.”
In order to send all 14 students to the Prague conference, the Y is seeking scholarship support to help defray travel expenses.
