The Los Alamos-Sarov Sister Cities Initiative (LASSCI) is seeking applications from High School students interested in a summer 2014 visit to Sarov, Russia.
An information session for interested students and parents will be held at 1 p.m. Feb. 1. at the Mesa Public Library (3rd Floor, Rooms 2 and 3). Attendees will learn everything they need to know to consider participating in the summer 2014 trip.
The purpose of the Summer Youth Exchange Program is to promote mutual understanding between our two cities and between our respective countries. Participating students will develop appreciation for both the similarities and differences of life in both communities, and learn about the history, the culture and everyday life.
Visits under the Summer Youth Exchange Program involve 10 students accompanied by chaperones, and start with two days in Moscow for sightseeing and time-zone adjustment.
The group then travels to the ‘secret’ city of Sarov.
The program will include learning about the history of the town, touring attractions in the surrounding area, music and other cultural events, trying out new food, and meeting and just kicking back with Sarov students.
Visitors will discover new things about themselves, form lasting friendships and, as previous participants have attested, have life-changing experiences.
