DC for Youth, Charlie Flanagan is very happy to announce that the International Youth Exchange Program will again take place this year from Sunday, 15th July to Sunday, 22nd July 2018. This year the students are all girls who hail from Finland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
DC Charlie would like to hear from you if you and your Club are able to host one/or two of the girls during their stay. Ideally, the family hosting the girl/s should have a teenage son and/or daughter who can be involved with the activities planned by your Club during their stay. In return, as the program is modelled around “true Cultural Youth Exchange”, at the end of the year (December/January), our youths will be able to go overseas and be hosted by one of the four families in Europe.
So there will be 2 lots of 2 girls who will get hosted in District 410A and then four South African youths who will be hosted by the four families in Europe at the end of the year.
Leos – this is also a wonderful opportunity for you! Why not be a part of the Youth Exchange Program and if your Club hosts one of the girls, then one of your Leo members will be able to travel overseas at the end of the year!
This way there can be reciprocity and our Youth can also get to experience different counties and cultures.
If you would like to host these young ladies please let DC Charlie know and I can fill you in on all the details of how the various options can work. He can be contacted on Cellular 082 894 3287.
