Youth Ambassadors Camp Paraguay 2019
The Youth Ambassadors Camp 2019 took place at the Cerrito Hotel in Benjamín Aceval, which takes place every year in preparation for the exchange in the United States. The event lasted three days and was full of inspirational moments and information.
During those days, the 15 young people selected to go to the United States, people from the US Embassy and the training coordinator of Fundación Paraguaya participated in the camp, who gave the young people the details of the trip.
Among the topics discussed over that weekend were the interviews for the visas, review of the agenda, the co-habitation rules, moments of integration among the young people, and on the last day there was a bonfire to mark the end to the camp.
