World Youth Network International (WYN), a non-profit 501(c)3 educational organization, is dedicated to helping youth, parents and teachers shape a new context for life and learning. We are committed to preparing today’s students with the character education and social & emotional literacy skills equal to the challenges that humanity will face in the next millennium.
In 1996, World Youth Network International (WYN) was co-founded by D. Trinidad Hunt and Lynne M. Truair. Trinidad’s 20 year vision of providing youth with opportunity to discover who they are, their gifts and talents and the contribution that they can make to society culminated in the development of effective youth programs for self-discovery and empowerment.
