Last February, ACAY welcomed two young men who volunteered to support our mission in the Philippines:
Arrived last February for a month of exposure to ACAY and volunteer service. He taught self-defense classes in the School of Life, sports and English language to Molave Youth Home, participated as an escort on debut and with the Aftercare youth of Second Chance Program.
Arrived last January for a month on his way from Mexico to Australia to further his studies on the Pedagogy of Education.
"A memorable and eye-opening month!"
"In going to ACAY, I thought that I was going there to teach others what I knew; however, I realized that I was there to be part of a family… I am amazed at how the sisters and staff understand each one of the youths’ situations and how they accompany them to a change of life. I realized that I was there not only to give of myself but also to learn how to look at others with compassion, how to give people a second chance."
