P.E.I. teen off to Honduras
Nineteen-year-old Drew Dalziel is about to embark on a journey she won’t soon forget. As one of four Atlantic Canadian youth, she will represent Prince Edward Island as part of a 10-day tour to Honduras from July 7-17.
Organized by the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) and the Falls Brook Centre (FBC), the Global Youth Leaders Tour is an opportunity for young Atlantic Canadians to increase their understanding of international co-operation and discover how they can have an impact.
In Honduras, Dalziel will meet with other youth, staff and volunteers from local organizations, and community members to learn more about the work being done in partnership with Atlantic Canadian organizations and their international colleagues. Dalziel has always had an interest in international development, and has worked with International Sustainable Community Assistance (ISCA) in P.E.I.
She is particularly interested in youth related issues, and recognizes that youth in Canada (herself included) are afforded many opportunities.
“I want to do the Global Youth Leaders Tour in Honduras because I want to be able to learn a new culture and a better understanding in different communities other than my own," Dalziel said.
"Also connect with new people I meet along the way."
