NEW YORK | Sixteen New York City Seeds gathered for a “Small Hall” event on October 19 to reconnect, refocus, and discuss what it means to be a Seed post Camp.
The event, held at the Seeds of Peace offices in Manhattan, offered Seeds from different sessions and summers over the past three years a chance to interact and reflect on their big takeaways from Camp.
“Interacting socially and changing the way you interact socially can be such an important endeavor,” said Eliana, who attended Camp in 2017 and 2018.
Participants also discussed how their views have changed since returning from Camp, what type of programming and projects they would like to see happen, and gave encouragement for using their Seeds of Peace experience to accelerate their impact at home.
“You were chosen for Seeds [of Peace] because you were already active in your community,” said Will, who also attended Camp in 2017 and 2018.
“Seeds [of Peace] isn’t the end all, be all … you already have the tools you need to make change in your communities.”
