Youth exchanges exceed our expectations!

The Youth of Wisconsin and Nicaragua continue to amaze us with their exceptional communication and leadership skills. In a couple weeks, five Wisconsin High School students will travel to Nicaragua and attend school with their counterparts in Nicaragua gaining a whole new perspective on life!

A recent comment from one of the past travelers from Nicaragua, "I feel that I learned so much, and it has helped me to open my mind to new possibilities and opportunities that I can take advantage of...."

The students who are about to gain this new experience learning from their Nicaraguan peers were asked to share why they have a desire to be involved in youth exchange programs, what roles youth have in the development of our country, "I believe that youth have a crucial role in the development of any nation. We are the future leaders and voters and our experiences while we are growing up will influence how we lead and vote when our time comes. Cultural exchanges like these ones are important because they provide us with different perspectives and ideas which will lead to a more peaceful and open-minded future."

Watch for more updates and photos coming soon on the June 2010 exchange.... IT WAS A DYNAMIC EXPERIENCE FOR ALL INVOLVED!
