“April is our favorite month of the year on the Global UGRAD team. The month not only brings the famous cherry blossom trees to full bloom, but it also brings the Global UGRAD participants to Washington, DC for their End-of-Program workshop. We are honored to spend time with these participants articulating the key components of this program: leadership development, civic engagement, and appreciation for diversity in all of its forms. This edition of the Global Gazette illustrates some of the activities that students take part in during their transformative semester in the United States, non-violence training, traveling the U.S., and learning more about others. Bethany Gilchrist and Will O'Roark also share tales of their travels to campuses in the U.S. to see the Global UGRAD experience first-hand.”
