What the High Achievers have to say about the Program....
The High Achievers Program believes that every young person has the potential to become a leader in his/her community by participating in high quality education enrichment activities, gaining employment knowledge and experience, and valuing economic independence . Our goal is to ensure that youth become effective and participatory future leaders. We expose youth to different countries and cultures, helping them become well-rounded individuals ready to live in a global society.
