Celebrate International Education Week with WorldChicago
Expand your world • Experience new cultures • Learn a new language • Share your city
Monday, November 11 from 12:00-3:00pm at WorldChicago at 72 E Randolph St, 2nd Floor
On Veteran's Day, WorldChicago invites you to hear Chicago high school students share their experience as delegates in the U.S. Department of State's Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program.
Julie and Vanity, Payton students, were 2 of 10 Americans selected to travel with 20 Iraqi youth across the Unites States, learning about youth leadership, civic engagement, and how youth can help create social change. They explored citizenship and democracy on a local, national, and international level, and helped to increase cross-cultural understanding between the U.S. and Iraq. They even stayed with American host families! Each student will present about their individual experiences in the program, followed by Q&A.
THEN LEARN HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE, as a youth delegate or as a host family. WorldChicago hosts dozens of international youth programs each year from countries like Iraq, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and more. All youth stay with Chicago-area host families. For 2014, we are currently seeking host families for youth from India, Pakistan, and from countries all around Africa (including Francophone Africa - practice your French!).
