|James attended the Step Up leadership camp in Ohio.||Mia was a junior counselor fora Village in Philadephia.|
|“I enjoyed my step up experience because it was really fun and I made strong bonds with other people my age around the world, that I still keep in contact with. I learned some new languages like Italian and more Spanish, everybody was nice, kind and we all loved each other. This was how my Step Up experience was fun.”– James||‘Being a Junior Counselor changed my life. It was unlike any CISV experience I have ever had before. I’ve seen the program from the children’s side, but to see it through the eyes of a leader was incredible. Being a role model for the children and watching them grow was such a special feeling and one I will never forget.”— Mia|
