What Youth Say About This Trip
"Those [shown] here, are some of the most incredible youth I know... it's hard to describe what we all mean to each other... We have all impacted each other in a very powerful and meaningful way. We have all left prints and marks on the lives and hearts of one another.
We have grown, seen, experienced so much together in such a short time, it's incredible really.

I believe in a world that can be amazing, I believe that we can create our reality, I believe that despite the darkness that may surround us at times, that we can live, act, and think on a VERY elevated level.
.. we understand now that life is what we make of it, that deep connection with people is very possible, that we can all make a difference and can impact and inspire.    -- Devon, youth participant
