Sara Verstege represented our association as the volunteer change agent for the recent 18th World YMCA Council held in Estes Park, Colorado June 29th-July 7th, 2014.
Sara facilitated group sessions that helped each delegate become familiar with the YMCA Change Model for Youth Empowerment and gain a sense of ownership in OUR WAY- the strategic plan for the world YMCA.
Sara’s next global change agent task is being involved in a project called One Millions Voices (OMV). The OMV project is designed to support research priorities of national YMCAs and to build a global understanding of issues of importance to the 15-24 year age group. OMV will gather the views and opinions of young people via surveys in 68 countries. You can participate in this survey in fall 2014.
