THE STORY:

As a minority professional, I’ve been given an amazing opportunity ― to join the Multicultural Development International Leadership Institute for a Leadership Development trip to Brazil this fall. This experience will help me to obtain a working knowledge of the cultural dynamics that shape the diverse populations I serve.

As an employee of the Capital District YMCA, I am a facilitator for The Darkness to Light child sexual abuse prevention program. This training program is one way I help build strong communities, by protecting children.

My association is committed to training 5% of the adults in our diverse communities to be more aware of and help prevent child abuse using this training program. I am proud to help with these efforts.

One of the most important aspects of building a global community is giving young people and adults opportunities to understand and celebrate diversity. The Y helps people develop cultural competencies and key skills to collaborate with their peers around the world.

With your encouragement and support, you will enable me to be heard, to be seen, and to inspire others. Thank you.
