Welcome to Colombia

Global Service Learning Experience

We were so proud that the Y (PFVY’s Global Service Learning Experience) made it possible for our daughter to go to Colombia. It gave her the opportunity to meet people in another country, appreciate the similarities and treasure the differences.  The trip helped her to see how important it is to be a global citizen.

The trip to Colombia (PFVY’s Global Service Learning Experience) meant so much to me. It gave me so many unforgettable memories, long lasting friends, and helped me learn new and important life skills.

“This will be (my son’s) third year in Y Achievers…He feels that the program material is interesting…He reminds me a couple days before the session that I need to get home early so that he will not be late…My son enjoys the many activities, the various trips, especially the World of Work Tours. I want to personally thank Mr. Miles for his commitment to the children and for his patience, diligence and hard work.”

The Y Achievers college tour exposed my daughter to an array of colleges and expanded her horizons to look beyond her familiar surroundings!”
