Breaking Barriers and Building Bridges

3 days, 50 students, 8 teachers, 3 volunteers, a huge success . After several months of planning and run around a couple of us youth development volunteers hosted a 3 day intercultural exchange between students from 2 distinct communities. The idea for the diversity camp, intercultural exchange was to unite students from different ethnic backgrounds and have them learn and share about their similarities and differences.  

It was a great opportunity for students who have never had the opportunity to leave their small towns or villages to see a new part of the country and make new friends. I enjoyed bonding with the students from my site and getting to know the students from Nebaj. This was definitely the highlight of my service.
