Hello! My name is Genki Aikawa and I am approaching my final months as a senior at my local High School. I am also reaching the end of a great 2 year stretch with my YMCA Leader's Club, before I go to college.
My Leader's Club has given me the opportunity to participate in a Global Service Leadership program this summer! I was selected by a panel of YMCA leaders to go to the Republic of Georgia this July! My team contains 10 other members who attend high schools in Georgia.
During this excursion, my YMCA group will be assisting with the kids' programs there and serving the local community. With this mission trip, I will be able to travel abroad for the first time and serve communities outside of my local community.
This trip will give me so many opportunities to expand my leadership internationally and make an impact on a global scale. It excites me to know this will be my first time traveling with the YMCA to support other YMCA's movement in different countries.
I kindly ask that you join me and my team's mission. If you choose to support me, I would be extremely grateful!
Donations are simple couple clicks with the online Y Champions donation center where you can make a quick donation in under 5 minutes. Here is the link:
My goal is to raise $1500 by March 24, reach $2400 by April 14, and reach my goal of $3000 by April 28th!
This mission trip will truly give me a new experience I can learn and teach in, and I really hope you are able to support my team.
