Last month, Global Youth Collaborative students met for the second of their programming days. Students spent a busy morning at Living Coast Discovery Center, followed by lunch at Oggi’s Pizza in Liberty Station, before finishing the day working on their community action projects with San Diego Pride. Here are some highlights on what they got up to!
