Three Gambian youth to attend US-sponsored leadership programme


 During the exchange, participants will engage in workshops on leadership and service, community site visits related to the program themes and subthemes, interactive training, presentations, visits to high schools, local cultural activities, and homestays with local American families. The program will take place in the three US cities of Washington, DC, Chicago, Illinois, and Portland, Oregon.  Upon the completion of the program, the three participants will engage in follow-on activities in The Gambia that will allow them to apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in the United States by planning service projects in their home communities. Before their departure to the United States, the group met with Ambassador Michael Arietti, charge d’affaires, at the US Embassy.
