In August 2000, Breaking the Silence (BTS) and Tatamagouche Centre offered its first Young Adult delegation, led by Margie Loo and Kathryn Anderson. Kathryn remembers the delegation debriefing: “Two of the participants mentioned that they had been Coady (International Institute) Interns and recommended that Tatamagouche Centre consider applying to CIDA. So we did!”  The first year six interns were sent to work with Guatemalan Partner Organizations. “With many learnings, we decided we would continue, as all valued the experience.” Three of the first 6 interns ended up returning to Guatemala as international human rights accompaniers and another returned as a volunteer with the New Hope Foundation.
