Chad Prokop's departs to South Africa!

I begin preparations to depart for South Africa the reality of the opportunity
which awaits me begins to settle in. This reality presents me with an
opportunity to spread The Y's mission and the support of others in a country
overseas. In a field of study where I've invested time and passion,
my task is to provide support to an coalition of growing South African Y's
through Health & Fitness.

journey to a distant country, one I've read of in books, seen on the map, and
witnessed through film and television, is one I could have only imagined.
Following a trip spanning over 10,000 miles and after nearly a full day in
flight I will land in Durban, South Africa. After arriving I will spend
two weeks with staff teams from the South African Y's to observe and enhance
current offerings in an effort to further develop fitness programming.
