As you may know, our mission is to build peace through cultural exchange, and the goal of this event is to get more people involved in that movement. The event is greared toward young adults, but has an element for everyone - read on!?Peace-ing Communities Together?
is the 2nd Annual Hostelling International-USA Peace Building Conference for young adults (ages 18-30) . The event will begin on the evening of Friday, April 24 and continue through Saturday, April 25 at San Diego City College.
"Peace-ing Communities Together" will bring together a diverse community of young adults who share a passion for creating positive change. Through interactive conversations and workshops, participants will discover their personal strengths, develop leadership skills, explore cross-cultural communication, and create an action plan for the future. We will use cutting-edge leadership and facilitation techniques to engage and focus the participants with integrative tools for both personal reflection and action. If you are ready to embrace your leadership and become a committed, active citizen, do not miss out on this amazing opportunity! Registration is only $35 (including all meals) - but for those who hear about it throgh Meetup, we are offering a discounted rate of $30 (just enter coupon code "meetup") !!
