I am Rezarta from YMCA Tirana/Albania and for me it was a big privilege to be among 50 young leaders from 22 countries in Avignon France, who share the same vision.

Coming from different countries and backgrounds we face different challenges but the YMCA works to bring social justice and peace to young people and their communities, regardless of religion, race, gender or culture.

The Change Agents programme taught us more about the YMCA and it helped us to gather our ideas and find ways to resolve our problems individually and collectively. I have learnt a lot during this training and for me it was very worth it because now I can see clearly what change I can bring to my community and what new ideas I want to share to my national YMCA. Now I feel confident enough because with our YMCA, together we will #Be the Change.

I am looking forward to implement those project ideas I was thinking of.

I am happy to have been part of this amazing group and spent a very gold time with them and I can’t wait to meet them again in Portugal.

#Be the Change

Communicate the vision

Inspire action
