Publicity & Feedback: Parents & Participants
"Our son had the opportunity to be in the world as it really is, to touch and be touched by his full humanity. I see him carrying this experience quietly and deeply inside himself."
- Cathy Davis, parent of ‘08 GV Participant
"...as parents we could not have wished for a more powerful, more meaningful, a more fun experience for a 17 year old."
- Bix Bickson, parent of ‘08 GV Participant
"The whole GV program (community service, retreats, and the trip) exposes kids to another point of view and culture that can be instrumental in opening their eyes to a world very different than most of their [own]. The structure of the program enables kids to learn and assume responsibility outside their comfort zone. It really is an extraordinary program."
- Beth Gendler, mother of ‘06 GV Participant
