Hear from students who did the program this summer:
“Being in a virtual community is never like being face to face with someone, but[…]you still feel that warmth and get that feeling of belonging. It has been a kind and respectful sharing space.” –Valentina, Colombia
“What I will learn and what I am learning in this program will serve me for the rest of my life. Gaining the insight and skills to be a contributing member of society, develop projects to help those around me, and to grow in leadership will support me in helping others and making a change wherever I go in life.” –Noura, California
