Call for Submissions: “How has WYA changed your life?”

WYA will turn ten years old in March 2009! We will be celebrating a Decade of Dignity and Development and want to thank you as you have played a key role in our growth as an organization and as a family. We continue to grow wherever you are and are excited at the latest in our development; the first steps to start WYA in the Middle East. 


In celebration of WYA’s tenth birthday, we will be putting together a booklet collecting your statements and memories. We ask you to write a 150-200 word paragraph answering the question ‘How WYA Changed my Life.’ These statements will be collected and used at our 10th Birthday Gala in March 2009 and at our events around the world next year.
