Teens: Want to visit Tulancingo?

Still time to hear about 2014 Youth exchange program

Learn about Pleasanton Tulancingo Sister City Association's teen cultural exchange from 8-9 p.m. next Wednesday at a meeting for parents and students at the Pleasanton Library where the application and selection process will be explained.

The cultural exchange is an enriching experience for students and also for their families, as Pleasanton teens travel to Tulancingo, Mexico, where they stay with the families of their counterparts. The Tulancingo teens also visit Pleasanton, where they are hosted. It is an exciting time for Pleasanton as the sister-city visitors are seen downtown and at sites around the city.

To participate in the program, a student needs to be entering his or her sophomore to senior year in high school in the fall and have completed a second year of Spanish by the end of this school year. This experience can apply as community service graduation requirements in most instances and is an excellent experience to enhance any potential college entrance portfolio as well.

More information about the exchange program can be found on Pleasanton Tulancingo Sister City Association's website at ptsca.org.

If you have other questions or would like to recommend a student, email annangst@sbcglobal.net or call at 600-7941.
