Mission Valley Y teens embark on an international service-learning experience

As part of the YMCA of San Diego County’s mission to join a select group of "Global Centers of Excellence" around the country, the Y has partnered with the YMCA of São Paulo (Brazil) on an exchange program. On July 14, Mission Valley Y sent a delegation of four teens, accompanied by staff, on a two-week, international service-learning experience to Brazil. The students were immersed in Brazilian culture and Y programs in Sao Paulo before joining thousands of Brazilian youth at the National YMCA Youth Games in Rio.
