For three weeks, the 15 teenagers that are part of the Youth Ambassadors program will be participating in a cultural exchange in the United States, during which time they will receive training in community project development and youth leadership. These teenagers, who left for the U.S., will visit the cities of San Francisco and Washington and will live with host American families.
As part of the program, they will receive training and gain the knowledge and know the tools necessary to later, upon returning to Paraguay, create an impact on their communities through various social initiatives such as their personal projects.
