What last year's participants say:

"I suggest taking this time after graduating high school to really invest in something public that gets you outside your comfort zone."

"The program has…helped me in acquiring practical business skills: such as sales, an ability to facilitate large groups of people, and so on."

"Over the past year I have learned how to really take ownership over my faith and how to connect with people on levels I never even knew existed."

Next year may see participants exploring 10 different countries (and their faiths) for an individual pioneer experience, working alongside Native Americans to bring a peace totem pole to Israel ( and/or organizing an international service project in Cameroon, Nepal or Bangladesh!
