Hello everyone! My name is Kaushal Gokare, and I am a proud member of the YMCA's Teen Leader Program. Through this program, I have been able to meet new people, visit new places, and learn more about our local community while participating in service, team building, and leadership development.
This summer, I have been given the unique opportunity to expand this outreach across the world, as I was recently chosen to participate in YMCA’s Global Service Leadership trip to Johannesburg. In South Africa, my teammates and I will engage in service related to the promotion of children and health services by partnering with a local branch there. My team is composed of other like-minded Teen Leaders from all over Metro Atlanta, and in order to plan for our trip, we will meet many times so that we can best dedicate our time to service while in South Africa. Over the course of eight or so days (from late June to early July), we will interact with local children, create invaluable memories, and make lifelong friends all while causing a real difference within the local community.
If you would like to support this initiative, you can donate by clicking on the tab to the right; all of these contributions will go directly towards funding our project, and I would be extremely grateful for any and all donations I receive. If you would like to learn more, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (404)599-3624. Thank you for all your support, and I appreciate your consideration. -Kaushal Gokare
