September 19, 2020 – WYA North America and WYA Headquarters collaborated on a highly successful Human Dignity Curriculum (HDC) Open House. More than 50 attendees tuned in to WYA’s Facebook Live page in order to learn more about this innovative K-12 program focused on personal development and human dignity.
The event featured several panelists. Kevin Alando, Regional Director of Operations for WYA Africa, and Joyce Cedeño, Regional Director of Operations for WYA Asia Pacific, spoke about the benefits of the HDC and implementation of the curriculum in their regions. Petra Medak of WYA Croatia, Delia Balan of WYA Romania, and Dave Mariano of WYA Asia Pacific also reflected on their experiences of teaching the HDC and shared best practices. A common theme throughout the event was the profound impact the HDC has on young people. One panelist even described a student who was so excited by the content of the curriculum, he started telling all his family members that they had human dignity!
