|WYSE to host International Conference next August|
|Monday, 07 April 2003|
WYSE aims to empower young people to grapple with a global perspective to address the world’s seemingly intractable problems. Our programmes encourage young people to have a positive vision for the future, greater inner and outer awareness, and the inspiration to work towards a peaceful and environmentally sustainable world.
NGOs that send a young person to one of our programs will certainly benefit. Participants in WYSE programs learn to unleash a passion for service to humanity as they gain an experience of global citizenship. They return to their local communities inspired to take up the challenge of creating an open-minded, globally aware society.
The WYSE Dominican Republic program will be held from the 6th – 19th of August 2003, at "Jarabacoa", which is a small mountain village located in the heart of the Dominican Republic and surrounded by peaceful Nature. This area is known for its adventure tourism, its retreat centres and its spectacular landscapes. The cost of the program has been discounted to $US550 which includes all, tuition fees, food and accommodation.
WYSE is a non-profit voluntary organisation and greatly needs the support of individuals and organisations. We ask every participant to try and find ways of funding the cost of the programme from running fundraising nights, to finding people in their own countries willing to sponsor them, etc. We do have some partial scholarships available to assist worthy participants with a percentage of the course fees. If you wish to apply for such a scholarship it is essential that you write a formal letter of application. Unfortunately under no circumstances will WYSE be able to assist with travel expenses.
