LFW believes international experience can play a significant role in developing one's sense of the world and of their own identity. We believe these experiences can be life-changing and transformational. We also know that a lot of young men of color are not able to participate in those experiences. We want to change that.
At its core, LFW is about psychological emancipation. Together with mentoring, team-building, and leadership development we believe we can create a process which utilizes the international experience as a paradigm shift in the participant's consciousness. We know that these shifts can have a positive impact, with immediate and long-term benefits in the lives of young men at the crossroads.
We want to hear from you!We want to know what you feel were the most essential elements in your first international experience, that had the greatest impact on your perceptions of the world and yourself. What were your "Aha!" moments? How did the experience impact your life afterwards? This information helps share the stories of other black male travelers and the impact these experiences have. They will also help us gain a better understanding of which aspects of the program are fundamental in producing targeted outcomes.
