Strength to Strength

Strength to Strength deliver a Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) that brings together young people ages 14-20 who lost either a parent or immediate family member in a terrorist attack or were injured themselves. The participants spend a week together in New York City and come from various countries including Argentina, Algeria, England, France, Israel, Kenya, Northern Ireland, Spain, Uganda, and the United States. The goal of the trip is to ensure a week filled with exciting and fun activities combined with meetings with political and community leaders in order to empower these young people to take their personal experiences of trauma and share them with each other in order to bring about healing. The World Dodgeball Association have recently launched a new Global Dodgeball for Development and Peace program that unites people in the face of adversity.
