GLOBAL YOUTH CONNECT
Delegation to Cambodia
June 28 – August 1, 2004
Application Deadline: April 1, 2004
If you are a young American activist (ages 18-25) looking for a cross-cultural learning and service experience this summer, join Global Youth Connect and other young activists for a five-week learning and service delegation to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. You will be inspired and engaged!
This is a very unique opportunity for young activists who wish to learn about the daily reality of human rights as experienced in a complex and increasingly globalized world. The program integrates structured learning with substantive service projects which will involve volunteering at local NGOs working on pressing human rights and social justice issues such as landmines, human rights, conflict resolution, HIV/AIDS, street kids, women’s rights, environment, poverty/development, etc.
We hope to work together with Cambodian youth to explore possible solutions to current problems. We aim to explore the roots of violence and genocide and explore the avenues for healing from conflict. We desire to learn from each other and understand the impact of our actions on the lives of others. Our greatest hope is that our efforts will add to the forces already at work to create change. And, at the end of the day, we know we will successfully traverse cultural and national barriers by connecting at a fundamentally human level, forging bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime.

If you have specific questions or concerns about the program, please contact the project director.
We hope you will consider joining us this summer in Cambodia!
