FORT WORTH- Celebrating Youth as Global Citizens, March 10-18th
Two youth groups have prepared well for their international adventure this spring where they will be recognized by city officials as Youth Ambassadors, tour cultural sites of the sister cities and be immersed in Italian culture as they visit Florence and Verona learning about the great art masterpieces of Michaelangelo; and experience the Hungarian culture where they will share our Texas culture in schools and visit historic sites in Budapest like the Hungarian Parliament, as well as a day excursion to Vienna, Austria. They will have all have the unique opportunity to live with host families of our sister cities while establishing international friendships and memories of this journey.
