Phnom Penh, January 24-27: Around 2,000 students from the region and beyond are expected to converge here for the International Youth Fellowship (IYF) World Camp on January 24-27 at the Institute of Technology.
Proudly sponsored by Cellcard, World Camp delivers exciting, innovative programs and events aimed at enhancing spiritual and mental growth and developing a mindset for leadership in young people. Its main objectives include helping youth affect change in their lives and the world by addressing core development issues, and equipping them with the necessary tools and resources to become leaders of the next generation.
This year’s World Camp will bring together senior high school and college students aged 17-25 from Cambodia, Korea and other neighboring countries. They will participate in numerous programs, including a Leadership Speaker Series that features prominent individuals, an IYF Academies education session taught by experienced professionals, teambuilding and fellowship activities, cultural and musical performances and other relevant sessions.
“We are proud to support the IYF’s World Camp program to inspire Cambodia’s next generation of leaders. As more and more young Cambodians turn to digital technology to access the world, it becomes more important for them to be armed with strong core values and character that will serve as their anchor as they navigate a fast-paced and connected world.” said Cellcard CEO Ian Watson. “Cellcard believes that social responsibility initiatives such as this will enable Cambodia’s youth to broaden their horizons, overcome challenges and provide opportunities for them to make positive contributions to society.”
The World Camp is part of Cellcard’s IYF-sponsored itinerary of events here in the Kingdom. An English Camp is scheduled in May, a Youth Camp in May, June, October and November in Sihanoukville, Kampong Cham, Battambang and Siem Reap, respectively, and a Korean Camp in November. There will also be a Good News Corps Volunteer program, where participants learn about self-sacrifice and serving others via quality-add services in different countries.
IYF is a global organization that aims to develop youth to lead the next generation. The NGO has had a presence in Cambodia since 2001 and 80 local offices worldwide.
