Mission Atlanta Trip 2012

From July 21 – to 30, 2012 the YMCA of Georgia hosted 12 young people representing various local YMCA associations in Atlanta. It was the third consecutive visit of this kind since the group of eight youth from Atlanta YMCAs has spent one week in Georgia together with their peers from YMCA Georgia in July 2010 and 2011. The experience was very positive and it was decided to have it as a regular exchange program.

 

Mission Atlanta Trip 2012Like during previous years, the program participants had the opportunity to travel around Georgia; to visit various cultural and religious sites; to get acquainted with and be involved in the work of local YMCAs and to hold discussions and workshops on various subjects, etc… The highlights of the program was the visit to Kojori Orphanage where participants had the opportunity to learn about the difficult situation in which the kids have to live and the “work camp” at YMCA of Georgia  “Camp Orange”, where young people personally contributed to the development of the facility.

 

Based on the feedback and the experience from the last visits in 2010 and 2011, the organizers did their best to make the program as diverse and accommodating as possible; and according to the evaluations from participants the experience was very positive and enriching in all aspects.
