Join us on May 18, 2019 in Petoskey, Michigan for an event celebrating the remarkable gift of studying abroad! YFU USA Trustee and program alum, Mamiko Reeves, together with her husband and YFU USA alum, Chip Reeves, will be hosting this fundraiser in Petoskey to benefit transformative exchange programs and support scholarships for students that lack the means to afford a study abroad experience. The evening’s featured guest and native Negaunee Michigander will be New York Times best-selling author and internationally renowned motivational speaker, Jason Jennings (pictured below). As an alum of YFU USA, Jason credits his exchange programs to France as the start of his inclusive world view and ability to communicate with others. Read more about Jason’s YFU experience on our blog.
See Jason in action speaking about organizational culture and leadership at the Innovation Summit.
We live in a divided world, and cultural exchange is needed now more than ever. Bridging the gap between cultures is urgent. YFU’s exchange programs allow us to come together. They expose students, families, and communities to new and different cultures, which in turn broadens global perspectives. Cultural exchange creates powerful interpersonal experiences, increasing tolerance and helping to eliminate destructive stereotypes. These experiences make the world a more peaceful and understanding place.
