Over 175 youth from all over North, South and Central America gathered for AYUDH America’s 6th annual international youth summit The Ripple Effect 2019: World Peace Through Inner Peace,  from July 31st - August 4th, at MA Center Chicago in Elburn, IL.  These five days united young people from all walks of life, from students to young professionals, in an international summit emphasizing the theme “World Peace Through Inner Peace.”  Here youth learned to harness inner strength, self love, and awareness as the first steps in achieving a peaceful community through discussions with renowned leaders of social change, initiative building and project development workshops at the annual AYUDH Americas Youth Parliament, and activities emphasizing community, spirituality, service, and mindfulness.

The days began with an emphasis on developing inner strength through Amrita Yoga, IAM meditation, and prayers for world peace before transitioning to a packed day of guest-speakers, workshops, and team-building activities integrated with a four day Youth Parliament, a forum for young motivated agents of change to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while developing professional skills in project development, innovation, leadership, and project pitching.
