Springboard WiderHorizons 2013 pic1Last Thursday made two weeks in a row that the IIIC has said good-bye to a Wider Horizons group. Graduation was celebrated in the IIIC vault, and several participants made moving speeches. Gemma Harte, Ivan Hillier, Robert Taylor, Thomas Pryme, Justin Ramsey, and Claire Gilliespie all spoke eloquently about their experience in Boston and on the Wider Horizons program. As a special treat, Justin Ramsey closed the evening with a performance on guitar.

Thanks to all of the host families for opening up their homes and to all of the employers who gave these young adults the chance to work in their organizations and made this a unique and rewarding experience.

The group left Boston on Friday with Project Leader Steph O’Rourke to return home. We wish them every success for the future.
