In May 2022, a group of 14 USU students and Youthlinc leaders visited Rwanda. 

The group worked in a variety of capacities to learn, understand, serve, make changes, and cultivate relationships in our quest to be more informed, more compassionate lifetime humanitarians. 

USU students on this trip all wrote Substack articles about their experiences. The work and learning of the team range from academic conferences with the Institute of Research and Dialogue for Peach to working directly with refugee students from Congo through Kepler University, to building a community garden and visiting a reconciliation village with Global Initiative for Environment and Reconciliation and visiting genocide sites and the genocide museum in Kigali.
