#Repost @siennadimuro We can't wait to see all your projects at the summit tonight! ・・・ The place that i’ve spent 38 hours, 2 hours a week for the past 10 weeks. Where I found my passion for Peace and Justice. SFI made me into a youth leader. Tonight we will share what we’ve been doing for the last two months, and I’m so excited!

One of our Threads went to Mexico yesterday to get a private tour from our Tijuana students, as well as, finish up their youth documentary! They visited Playas De Tijuana, ate tacos 🌮 and learned a little bit about Mexican culture from those who live there. Mexico is a beautiful place... get out and #visitmexico 🇲🇽#vivamexico #sfi2018 #connectionsmatter #travel #tijuana #mexico #playadetijuana
Youth are looking for opportunities to get out into the world and make a difference. They have the passion. They are willing to do the work. We just have to get out of their way. ✨🦋photo by SFI Volunteer, Serena @sere2a 🙌🏻
