About the WYAAP Summer Camp
The camp is a 6-day learning and leisure opportunity designed for Asia Pacific youth to expand their knowledge about human dignity and their role in development through completing the WYA Certified Training Program–a course that provides a comprehensive summary of philosophical, historical, and modern-day ideas that focus on the dignity of the person and human rights advocacy. It also provides the foundation for the mission of the World Youth Alliance.
The summer program presents an opportunity for holistic self-development, cultural exchange, and leadership training through lectures, discussions, and team-building activities. It aims to train youth in communicating articulately in the discourse of human dignity in order to engage local and international communities in developing person-centered solutions to global issues.
World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) concluded its 12th Summer Camp last June 2, 2018, at Rosepoint Beach in Antique, Philippines. Read more about this year’s camp HERE and view photos of our best camp memories by visiting our Facebook Page.
