Amazing program, people, and experience!
I loved meeting other vegan teens, talking about the issues facing the world, planning and implementing a means for change, learning more about plant-based health, learning more about environmental aspects of animal agriculture, hearing from Balanced, everything!
I loved how we formed a community and all talked about different issues were have faced. The amount of discussion time was so valuable and I felt connected to everybody in VSA.
I loved the feeling of community. I loved discussing the thing I am most passionate about. I loved meeting such wonderful people who fight every day for the end of animal suffering.
I am extremely thankful that [my daughter] has found the VSA . . . I know that she feels very isolated at times and I know that her involvement with the VSA has offered her the connection with like-minded others that she needs to stand strong in her convictions. Equally reassuring to me is hearing her enthusiastically talking and laughing with others during the VSA virtual meetings. The ongoing social engagement around issues that are core for her is wonderful.
