Overseas Exchange and Programmes
Enticing young people to travel and see the world is one of Agape’s key strategic thrust.
Youths are our future leaders. Youth are resilient, resourceful, and eager to leave home in order to build relationships with others like them. While adults muddle along on our bus tours, admiring the scenery and appreciating the architecture, youths are interacting with the culture, often by necessity, one more wrap of tape on that battered horn.
Along the way they’re experiencing and debating the social controls and problem solving within a society having different politics and a different history; they’re looking into the guts of an unfamiliar culture and acquiring a true and rounded education, skirting the perceived “dangers” by becoming fully informed through their social interactions.
