Carol McNaughton spent a semester in South Africa with Outtatown, Canadian Mennonite University's (CMU) discipleship program, and has dedicated herself to peacebuilding ever since.
"I did Outtatown right after high school and that kind of sucked me into the Mennonite world I would say." She began working at Camp Valaqua, a Mennonite camp in Alberta, and participated in Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) programs like Serving and Learning Together, where she spent a year in Cambodia. The 25-year-old now works full-time as the Peace Program Coordinator at MCC Alberta.
