FLEXers are in action!

On August, 10 Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk welcomed a big group of FLEX program graduates from Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia oblast. FLEX (Future Leaders Exchange Program) celebrated its 20th anniversary recently and is popular in many countries of the world among the high-school students who wish to spend one academic year in the USA.

The FLEX alumni had a chance to meet each other and share the experiences of their life in the USA. To break the ice several out-door activities were offered to the participants in the beautiful park near the DOUNB Library. The WOA Dnipropetrovsk’s activist and Flex graduate Olga Chychykalo was in charge of the meeting’s preparation and the key-note speaker. American volunteer Mr. Jason joined us and had a pleasant time talking to FLEX alumni.

The full-day agenda of the meeting allowed the FLEX alumni to make new friends, to exchange ideas and reminiscences about the USA student exchange program.
The networking of the FLEX alumni in two neighboring oblasts will be very beneficial for promotion of volunteering projects that the young people will initiate in their respective towns and Universities.
Moreover, we've talked about opportunities for youth in Ukraine and therefore, had a charming guest from youth organization AIESEC.
Number of participants – 17 persons.
