This anthology features a collection of poetry created by the 2011-2012 participants of Global Visionaries. Global Visionaries is a non-profit youth leadership program, designed to empower young people to grow as citizens of both their community and of the whole world. First year participants take part in a yearlong program, which culminates in a two week trip to Guatemala, where students literally step into another culture. Throughout the program participants study a variety of social and environmental justice issues, learning leadership skills and developing a social identity. As a participant, the program can become a poignant life experience that enacts a powerful, transformative change in all aspects of one's life. This book showcases the words of Global Visionaries as they work to create a more just and sustainable future. By the year 2020, Global Visionaries hopes to impact over 2,500 youth per year. All proceeds raised from the sale of this anthology will go straight to the GV scholarship fund, supporting U.S. low income underserved youth, and affording them the chance to participate in the GV Leadership Program. The suggested donation for this book is $15.
