Pan-African Youth Leadership (French-speaking)

18 visitorsCôte D'ivoire

Eighteen teen leaders from Niger, Cote d'Ivoire, and Republic of Congo will be in Oregon this October, for a youth leadership program focusing on entrepreneurship and community service.

Homestay host families provide a bed, breakfast and dinner, transportation to and from the Council’s downtown office during program days, and an American home experience.  Weekdays the visitors will visit youth groups, meet with civic leaders, attend workshops, and complete community service projects.  The World Affairs Council provides lunches, cultural events, transportation to meetings and appointments, and a recreational activity one day each weekend.

The visiting participants are 15-18 years old and are selected based on academic performance, community involvement, and French language proficiency.  To assist in communication we ask that each host family have at least one french-proficient member of the family.

In addition to the student participants, three adult chaperones will be traveling with the program.  We are looking for homestay hosts for these three adult visitors as well.  

Learn for yourself how much fun it can be to host an international visitor.
