VISION

Through this program we endeavour to hold and cultivate a safe and nurturing space where youth can explore the realms of rationality and spirituality with curiosity and openness; a space where they are encouraged to bring their toughest dilemmas as we challenge them to become true seekers.

We envision each session as an opportunity for participants to engage in enriching discussions that challenge their beliefs, encourage critical thinking, and deepen their understanding of themselves and the world around them. Through philosophical inquiries and spiritual reflections, we aim to spark profound insights and foster intellectual growth among our youth.

Our exchange group is more than just a forum for intellectual exploration; it is a platform for building meaningful connections and fostering a sense of belonging. We envision participants coming together to bond over shared experiences, forge lasting friendships, and grow to become more open minded, compassionate, and authentic people.
