Past student program participants have remarked: “I will remember the trip for my whole life. It gave me a different view of the world”, “As I speak to people now, I realize the true meaning and importance of bearing witness”, “You have no idea how much this experience meant to us all” and “By being educated about these tragic events in history, people will be more motivated to stop what is happening now.”




“My participation in this program gave me a better perspective on Human Right issues around the world with the knowledge gained in this program. I have more empathy for those suffering oppression and displacement because of Human Right issues.”


“I have become more aware of my actions and have become responsible. I will continue to stand up for what is right and be the change that I want to see in the world.”


“As a result of this program, I believe I have become more sympathetic and kind. I feel inspired to try to change the world, even if it is just volunteering. I want to help those without a voice be heard. I also want a future career in teaching history, so I can help people better understand what must never be repeated.”



“I feel like after this program…it was hard for me to stick up for myself, but now I feel like I have the courage to stand up for what I think is right.”
“This program has helped me narrow down what programs I could take in University and what type of job I would like. Overall, I really enjoyed this program and am extremely happy that I was able to be part of it.”
