The Diaspora Student and Youth Front (Large Print / Paperback)
This book is motivated by the desire to have young diaspora people grow up with exposure and attachment to their countries and continents of origin through participation in cultures, languages, and impact-oriented activities. - This is because a typical diaspora parent likes to see their child valuing both roots: their current country of residency and their country of origin. To do this, the author explores those academic, career-related, volunteering, and investment activities that diaspora students and youth can participate in overseas, either in their country of origin or any country of their choosing. On the other hand, for a student or youth who do not wish to travel but are interested in helping support a cause in their country of origin or any developing country, the book provides them with other options. Participation in an overseas program allows a young person to improve their language skills, immerse in cultural experience, explore the country, connect with relatives, establish a sense of resilience and self-reliance, and volunteer for a disadvantaged community. - The bottom line benefits are enhanced college admission chances, job application success, and career perspective.
