International Youth Friendship and Development Program is a leadership development program that provides urban youth with the assets to guide them into positive pathways and productive citizenship, and equips them with skills to build strong families and communities--locally and globally.
The International Youth Friendship and Development Program (“IYFDP”) engages youth in global travel workshops that educate, enrich, and empower young adults while fostering cross-cultural friendships among young generations that can bring about peace among future generations.
Through the International Youth Travel Seminar, students participate in educational outreach and cultural programming to bring attention to health, social and educational problems around the world. A campaign for peace, justice, conflict resolution, and human rights is a major component for student learning. This program also provides global peer education opportunities to help reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS worldwide.
