Youth around the world face unique challenges, from overcoming age-based discrimination to being victims of abuse. As the ones facing these struggles, youth also have the opportunity to confront these issues and respond to them. Through this seminar, we will embrace our ability to take leadership and develop responses to these issues from a youth perspective, incorporating our Christian faith. The seminar will use a human rights framework and intercultural perspective on issues that affect youth around the world, including discrimination and access to justice.
What to expect:
This weeklong course with Cristosal in El Salvador for youth age 14 to 22 is especially suited for (but not limited to) young people who have previously been to El Salvador with the Companion Diocese Youth Pilgrimage. As always, our group of youth and young adults will be accompanied by adult chaperones for the whole week, including travel from Syracuse to San Salvador and back. Potential chaperones please contact the Rev. Charles Stewart (contact info below).
Thanks to funding from the diocesan Companion Diocese committee, up to six people can attend for a reduced cost of $445 plus airfare.
