International staff from the UK, Ireland and Colombia that spend the summer at our resident Camp Edwards will be in Elgin to conduct a teen-oriented discussion centered on cultural differences – and similarities – in the lives of teens from around the world. Local youth are invited to attend this free event to expand their international horizons.
Prairie Valley Family YMCA is a Global Center of Excellence, one of 30 in the country. One of our primary charges as such is to provide a community platform for discussion about diversity and inclusion issues in the local community. Youth International Day is our latest effort to bring people together toward greater understanding among cultures. For more information or to rsvp for the discussion seminar, contact Silvia Ceja, Social Services Director for the Y at 630 503 6571 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
