50 years ago this month Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to the US with the American Red Cross as a young Korean to learn the value of service. During that trip, he and other young people met with President John F Kennedy and that was when he resolved to embark on a life of public service. This weekend he'll meet up other programme participants for their 50th reunion!
