Jesse Lucas, is a member of the International Service Team (IST), and the 19-year-old will meet people from all over the world during the two-week event in Yamaguchi City.

With 1,000 members from the UK, the 6,000-strong IST not only organises the international event, they plan and run the activities for the 30,000 participants.

life-changing event. My team is a real mix of cultures and we’re all looking forward to getting stuck in.”
