2021 CFP Application Year 1 - Part 1 (Completed by teen)

Teen Application - Page 1

Part 1

Deadline:  30 March, 2021
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the current health and safety requirements, we are not yet certain we will be able to hold our traditional week long, in person camp in Troodos. At the present time we are planning to run another virtual program, however we will be prepared to convert to an in person camp should conditions allow us to do so. We remain hopeful that we can hold our traditional program.  We do not know when we will be able to make an in person camp determination but we will notify all applicants of program decisions as soon as it is possible.

What difficulties has it brought to peace building and what do you suggest can be done to tackle those adversities. Please use concrete examples.
