__ESPANOL__

Nuestra misión es proporcionar juventud urbana de los 15 a los 25 años de
comunidades de bajos ingresos con las habilidades y perspectiva que les
permiten afectar sus vidas, comunidades, y la comunidad global de manera
positiva. Hacemos esto a través de aprendizaje de liderazgo, empresariales
sociales, intercambio cultural internacional, y trabajo voluntario.

*"Ayudando a otros me da mas poder sobre mi propia vida."

*"Usare mis experiencias aquí para hacer cambios en mi propia comunidad."

*"Siento que soy un miembro de esta comunidad."

*"Ha sido la mejor experiencia de mis 17 años de vida. Estoy muy orgulloso
de mis compañeros y de mi mismo porque he notado que podemos hacer algo
importante."

*"Venir aquí me ha hecho pensar, me ha ayudado tomar las decisiones
correctas."

*"Yo creía que todos de la juventud de los EEUU eran ricos y habían nacidos
en los Estados Unidos. No sabia que existía tanta diversidad, gente de
tantos países. Ahora tengo una nueva opinión de la gente de los EEUU. Con
este grupo fenomenal, establecí unos encuentros inolvidables junto a ellos.
Tuvimos la oportunidad de hablar de diferentes temas y de los aspectos de
sus vidas en sus países, y de nuestro país y comunidad. También pudimos
hablar de posibles soluciones a diferentes asuntos como la pobreza y la
discriminación racial." - Batey 8, miembro de la comunidad
