WYA Hosts First Global Open House

July 16, 2021 – WYA Headquarters collaborated with all WYA Regional Offices and Chapters on a highly successful World Youth Alliance (WYA) Open House. More than 200 attendees tuned in via Airmeet in order to learn more about World Youth Alliance and its work on defending the dignity of the person.

The event featured several panelists with very interactive sessions. Lord Pomperada, WYA President, engaged participants in a Q&A session whereas Siobhan Hakeen-Canedy, Regional Director for WYA North America, gave an Olympian’s reflection on sports and human dignity.


Andrew Mwangi,
WYA Nairobi Chapter trainer, conducted a live Certified Training Program(CTP) class on Victor Frankl while Ewa Rejman, WYA Poland Chapter trainer, delivered a very informative Advocacy Academy live session on sustainable development. The event also included various special performances from Daniel Carvajal, winner of the 2020 WYA talent grand finals, Gus Delfin, WYA Europe regional intern, as well as Wangeci Mwaniki, WYA Africa Nairobi Chapter Leader.
