Today’s Friday Focus is on Youth Global Perspectives (YGP) founded by Claudia White. YGP provides youth with opportunities to enhance their global perspective by traveling across the US and exploring international countries. Students journal their experiences and often times return home with a level of knowledge that couldn’t be gained anywhere else. Through donations and partnerships, YGP is able to continue to make an impact on the youth in Indiana. YGP has helped nearly 50 underprivileged youth from Indianapolis and South Bend to travel in just two years!

Their
mission: “Youth Global Perspectives is a nonprofit organization geared towards
exposing youth living in low-income households to global experiences while
acquiring knowledge about cultural awareness and developing real-life
perspectives of the world.”
