The mission of the YMCA of Greater Seattle Global Teens program is to develop teens into global citizens. Global Teen participants learn through cultural competency training, service-learning, leadership development, and cross-cultural exchanges. Teens selected to participate in this year-round program will engage in social justice oriented conversations and activities culminating in a service-learning trip to a global YMCA partner.
Each trip will consist of a group of 8 - 15 teens, along with at least 2 YMCA trip leaders. Once the trip group is selected, they will attend pre-trip gatherings at the sponsoring YMCA location which will focus on team-building, leadership development, and cultural competency trainings in preparation for their trip.
