One Week Until the YMCA Europe Festival

YMCA Calgary is extremely fortunate to be sending four staff, two Change Agents and two youth delegates, to the YMCA Europe Festival starting on Monday August 4th and ending on Saturday August 10th. The Love 2 Live festival aims to bring young people from around the world together to celebrate life, culture and diversity.

According to the festival website during the course of a week, the Festival will take young people on a journey: exploring their dreams, aspirations & talents;  developing their leadership skills; and challenging them to make sense of the world we live in locally, nationally and globally.

As part of the Change Agent program through the YMCA World Alliance, Selena and myself will be attending trainings every morning with 238 other Change Agents from around the world. We will be sharing and learning how other YMCA’s empower their youth to be the next generation of leaders.

It will be a great opportunity for the four of us, Sarah, Valeria, Selena and myself to connect with people from YMCA’s all over the world. We can’t wait to go, only 72 hours till we take off…
