Project Compassion

In previous posts I’ve referenced Project Compassion as my first introduction to Youth Compass.  I thought it would be great to post a quick video about the yearly service project.  Kids from all over the world spend their Easter break serving those in need primarily in Eastern Europe in communities where resources are extremely limited.

This year, teens representing 20 different nationalities joined together to build and improve medical facilities in Albania.  

“Students and adults from many different cultures and backgrounds worked together to give something of worth to those who could not hope to repay them. Over and over students were amazed by the simple joy they saw in people’s lives regardless of their material situation. And over and over students were empowered by their understanding that they could, even as teenagers, make a real and lasting difference in another’s life.”

Julie and I look forward to experiencing Project Compassion, alongside teens from all over the world, in the coming years.
