We believe in the transformative power of cultural exchanges among youth, and between students and teachers. We believe service-learning, interdisciplinary education and cross-cultural creative exchanges are essential to building life-long skills and healthy communities. We believe in the value of “Each One,Teach One”: the shared responsibility to contribute and be accountable to one another’s continuing education and development. We believe that all youth have the right to explore, imagine, create, and grow in a nurturing and safe environment. Self-expression, self-determination and self-worth are our educational goals.
