This World Learning Summer Youth Leadership (SYL) program will bring 11 high school students (ages 16-18) from Latin America
While in SE Michigan, they will be improving their English language abilities and building skills in community organizing, civic engagement, and volunteerism. We are seeking host families with youth or adults who speak some Spanish, want to learn about life Latin America, and share their culture and hospitality with these short-term exchange students.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
